Saamana has lashed out at BJP for removing the Shiv Sena from the NDA on the allegations of holding talks with Congress and NCP.
Saamana in its editorial said that removing Shiv Sena from NDA on the death anniversary of Balasaheb Thackeray is demeaning. "Balasaheb and others formed NDA at a time when nobody spoke of Hindutva and nationalism in politics. The people who are running NDA now were nowhere to be seen," read the article.
The editorial has compared the BJP party to Muhammad Ghori."We made the same mistake as that of Prithviraj Chauhan who let Ghori live even after defeating him 17 times and he got stronger and jailed Chauhan the 18th time.", stated the articles.
"We have been cheated by people with whom Shiv Sena stood by when nobody else was ready to do so. Maharashtra has been back-stabbed. Sena was not even given a showcause notice before being removed from the NDA,â€ said the Shiv Sena party.
