Shiv Sena has once again lashed out at the BJP. This time over the sedition charge against JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar. This is not the first time Sena has been critical on the BJP. Sena president Uddhav Thackeray has been critical on the government on issues like Ram temple , demanding JPC on Rafale deal
The Sena pointed out that the BJP has no moral right to act against Kumar after having formed an alliance with the PDP in Jammu and Kashmir. Which split after three years.
“The BJP committed the biggest sin of aligning with Mehbooba Mufti, who considers Afzal Guru a freedom fighter and a martyr. Now the BJP, for its own benefit, should not try and take political mileage out of the sedition case filed against Kanhaiya,” the Sena said in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.
“Kanhaiya Kumar speaks well. Since he represents the harried and unemployed youth, he cannot give slogans hailing Afzal Guru or independence for Kashmir. Anyway, what moral right does the BJP have to condemn Kanhaiya Kumar?” it asked.
