New Delhi, June 22: After being constantly criticised by the Shiv Sena, the BJP decided that enough was enough. A hard hitting article in the BJP's fortnightly, Manogat has paid the Shiv Sena back in its own coin.
The article is written by the Maharashtra BJP spokesperson, Madhav Bhandari and is it titled, " when are you taking Talaq Mr. Raut.
Ever since the Maharashtra government was formed, the Shiv Sena has been taking pot shots at its alliance partners. The Shiv Sena has issued statements of a variety of issues which include policy decisions of the BJP to ties with Pakistan.
Accept the changing political situation:
The article says that the Shiv Sena must accept the change in the political situation.
Quoting the 1995 elections, the article says that the BJP won 65. In the 2009 elections despite contesting from lesser seats, the BJP won 2 seats more than the Sena. They are frustrated as they are on the downfall, the article also reads.
The article also takes a strong view of the constant references made by Sanjay Raut of the Sena comparing the BJP to the rule of the Nizam. This is where the article asks the question, " when are you taking Talaaq or Divorce from the Nizam?"
The article further notes that the Sena eats biriyani in the plate that has been given by the Nizam and then they openly criticise the BJP.
They enjoy the perks because of the favour done to them by the BJP which has given them berths both in the centre and the state. Why can't they show courage and walk out instead of criticising?
