Bal Thackeray
Thane, Oct 3: In the backdrop of Shiv Sena taking a dig at BJP over Advani-Narendra Modi ''cold war'', the Maharashtra state BJP unit chief has observed that Bal Thackeray and party executive president Uddhav Thackeray should restrict themselves to giving suggestions and not criticise others.

"Those who cannot do anything only resort to criticism," state unit BJP president Sudhir Mungattiwar said here.

The remarks came in the background of Bal Thackeray's comments that appeared in the editorial in party mouthpiece ''Saamna'' amid reports of the recently concluded BJP national executive meet being overshadowed by a cold war between the party's two big guns - L K Advani and Narendra Modi- with the latter conspicuous by his absence.

The editorial stated that triphala churn" (an ayurvedic mix of three herbs used to detoxify and rejuvenate the body) concocted by the RSS, Gadkari and Advani is troubling the Gujarat chief minister.

Asserting that the Shiv Sena, BJP and RPI alliance is unbreakable and there is no scope for any "fourth" party to chip in ahead of the civic polls, Mungattiwar said "even though there were differences of opinion among the leaders of BJP and Shiv Sena over seat distribution they (leaders) do not have any authority to break the alliance. It is only the state unit which has to take decision on such crucial issues".

He was speaking on the sidelines of a day-long symposium "Vision 2020-Thane" organised by the Thane unit of the BJP last evening here.

Rebutting NCP chief Sharad Pawar's statement that the proposed rathyatra by L K Advani will be a "silent" one, Mungattiwar said "it is pity that the NCP chief Sharad Pawar does not know anything about the rathyatra of Advani".
