Shiv Sena took a dig at BJP national president J P Nadda’s comment and said that when the whole world was against Modi in 2002, only Balasaheb Thackeray supported him.
Mumbai: Shiv Sena took a look at BJP national president JP Nadda on Thursday for his comment that regional parties, including Shiv Sena, would perish. Sena’s mouthpiece Saamana said that “when the whole world opposed Narendra Modi, only Balasaheb Thackeray supported him when he was Gujarat CM in 2002 during the riots.
“At that time it was only Sena’s leader who said: “Keep the Raj dharma aside, don’t touch Modi because of Hindutva and don’t remove him from the position of CM of Gujarat”. After the riots in Gujarat, only Chief Sena remained alongside Modi. Now do you want to finish the Sena? Shiv Sena has carried BJP on their shoulders for 25 years. Today there is definitely a rift in the relationship, but BJP is still touring Maharashtra under the name of Balasaheb Thackeray, “Saamana said.
Shiv Sena said that it wasn’t taking BJP’s threats seriously.
“Regional parties are stronger in states like West Bengal, Kerala, Bihar, Odisha, Maharashtra, Telangana, and Andhra Pradesh. Not everyone will follow BJP. Punjab and Delhi are ruled by the AAP which has now invaded Naddas Himachal Pradesh. Because of this, Nadda will be tired in Himachal. Unable to fight with the Maharashtra Party , they are spliting it by showing fear of ED.
You will end up with a handful of people in your pockets, but Balasaheb’s Shiv Sena will touch the skies again,” Saamana stated.
