Today, Shiv Sena has praised BJP’s manifesto by giving it “200 out of 100” marks that the BJP has promised to remove Article 370 of the constitution and claimed it will provide special status to Jammu and Kashmir and construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.
The Sena said 2019 is the last chance to build the Ram temple, saying we can not compromise the integrity of the country. The Shiv Sena and BJP hold political alliance in Delhi and Maharashtra.
Those who compromise with the Uniform Civil Code and Article 370, history will not forgive them, said the Sena. The Sena in “Saamana”, an editorial in party mouthpiece, claimed, “The BJP’s ”sankalp patra” is one that encapsulates the feelings of the nation. Even the Shiv Sena’s demands have been included in it. We, therefore, give the manifesto 200 out of 100 marks.”
The Sena condemned National Conference leader Omar Abdullah and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti because they threatened that if Article 370 is scrapped, it would lead to freedom for Jammu and Kashmir from India and suggested a separate prime minister for it.
“The mouths of such people need to be shut… Dr (Farooq) Abdullah has even threatened that they will see who hoists the Indian flag there if the special status to the state is revoked. The tongues of such people need to be cut,” the editorial said in strong remarks.
On Tuesday, PM Narendra Modi while addressing a rally in Maharashtra’s Latur district told the people should vote for the BJP as respect towards the brave soldiers. The Shiv Sena party also agreed with the statement of BJP. It also admired the Modi government for giving importance to problems like poverty, agriculture, education, small traders.
