It has been widely reported that there is a small crack in the ally. The cracks were exposed after Congress MP Hussain Dalwai said the Sanathan Sanstha, known for the hardline Hindu group should be closed. The decision did not go well with Sena MP Sanjay Raut.
In an interview given to a Marathi news channel, Dalwai said the Sanatan Sanstha, which is facing the allegations of murder of rationalist Narendra Dabholkar should be banned and its head Jayant Athawale should be jailed.
"The Shiv Sena had never supported the Sanatan Sanstha till now. Moreover, if Maharashtra wants to progress, the troublesome elements will have to be kept under a tab. Maharashtra has got a pragmatic government and the CM has said that all measures would be taken to ensure peace and development. Hence, the government needs to nail the kingpins responsible for murders of Dabholkar and Pansare," he said.
"It was our mistake that we couldn't nail the organizations during the UPA tenure in the state. But, the government now must rectify the mistake. Whatever is being said by Sanatan Sanstha is self-explanatory and hence I feel that the government shall do the needful to ban such terrorist organizations," he observed.
"Some people are deliberately implicated in the Bhima Koregaon case. Bhide and Ekbote were involved in the case. Both are spreading terror. Hence the new government should take stand against them," he added.
