On Tuesday, the Shiv Sena praised Narendra Modi’s action of washing the feet of sanitation workers at the Kumbh Mela but with twist said the question before these people is for their “stomach” and not feet.
Two days ago PM Modi took a dip at the Sangam at Uttar Pradesh’s Prayagraj and carried out ‘charan vandana’ (washing the feet) of few sanitation workers to show respect and gratitude for their efforts in keeping the Kumbh Mela clean.
The Shiv Sena said in an editorial in its party mouthpiece Saamana, “Modi should be congratulated for washing the feet of sanitation workers, but the question concerning them is not about their feet but their stomach.”
The Marathi publication proposed that the “kar seva” or hand service of the PM will be successful only when these workers will be able to stand on their own feet.
On Sunday, a new scheme was launched by the PM which is Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-KISAN) scheme worth Rs. 75,000 crore at Gorakhpur. As the first installment, Mr. Modi transferred Rs. 2000 each to over one crore farmers.
Referring to this action, the Shiv Sena has accused that the government is trying to gain votes before the election by the PM-KISAN scheme and reducing GST from 12 to 5 percent.
The Uddhav Thackeray-led party said, “There are allegations that all this is being done keeping elections in mind. However, the budget before poll announcements is made for political benefits. Every political party in power does that.”
