BJP attacks Shiv Sena, poses three questions to alliance partner
The shaky alliance between Shiv Sena and BJP got into further troubled waters, as the later hit out at Sena, attacking the party over its recent controversial antics
With Sena and BJP at logger heads, the fight has become more evil. Now BJP is attacking from the front. Late evening, the Mumbai BJP president Ashish Shelar released three main questions and sought answers from the Shiv Sena.
Question 1. Where was the anti Pakistan nationalism when Former Pakistani cricketer & relative of Dawood Ibrahim, Javed Miandad was invited to Matoshree (Thackeray residence)
Question 2. Where was the anti Pakistan nationalism, when Rahat Fateh Ali Khan performed at at 5-star hotel and Aaditya Thackeray was present. (Sena has clarified that Thackeray wasn't present when Rahat had performed)
Question 3. Where had the anti Pakistan nationalism disappeared when for Pakistan sponsored bomb blast culprit Sanjay Dutt who now is in jail they demanded that he be released.
These are the three questions raised by Shelar. Shelar claims that the Shiv Sena is attacking BJP and CM Devendra Fadnavis for political gains. He also claims that Fadnavis was arrested when he went to Kashmir and raised the national flag few years ago, so questioning his nationalism is futile.
Shelar also has claimed that Shiv Sena doesn't follow Shivaji Maharaj, who even treated his enemies with respect. Sanjay Raut of Shiv Sena in the evening had said, "If our nationalism is hurting the BJP then they should resign from the government."
