Sena hits out at Modi's Mongolia visit

Sena said that there is so much debt in our country, why should India help Mongolia. "PM Narendra Modi should help dying farmers in Maharashtra," Sena said.

"Hailstorm or drought-hit farmers in Maharashtra are still waiting to receive help from the government. Turns out people in Mongolia are luckier than those in Maharashtra," the editorial read.

The party urged unions and ministers to come forward to help the farmers in the state.

Sena's criticism comes at a time when the country is witnessing farmers suicide on a large scale. Many farmer suicide cases have been reported from Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and more.
