Pawar’s politics dangerous, disrupting harmony: Sena
IN A blistering attack on NCP chief Sharad Pawar, the Shiv Sena on Wednesday said his politics was “dangerous” for Maharashtra and claimed it was disrupting the harmony in society.
It does not befit a former Chief Minister to pose hurdles in the police probe in the BhimaKoregaon violence, the Sena said, and asked whom was Pawar trying to save by pointing fingers at the probe into the incident.
After the Pune Police recently arrested five people in connection with the January 1 caste violence at Bhima-Koregaon in that district, Pawar alleged that the Government was branding some “progressive” people as “Naxalites” for organising the ‘Elgar Parishad’.
Citing instances of recent violence at some places in Uttar Pradesh, the Sena cautioned that attempts were being made to communally polarise Maharashtra as well.
“Sharad Pawar’s politics is dangerous for the State,” it said in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.
