The Shiv Sena has resumed its attack on the BJP a day after its chief Uddhav Thackeray had a closed-door meeting with BJP president Amit Shah.

In a direct attack on Shah, Shiv Sena mouthpiece ‘Dopahar ka Saamna’ asked the BJP leader to worry about Jammu and Kashmir instead of meddling in Maharashtra. “Amit Shah says the BJP will face any mid-term elections in Maharashtra. They may even win the presidential election.

“But who will win the war in Jammu and Kashmir... Our greatest worry is whether Jammu and Kashmir be part of India,” an editorial in the afternoon newspaper asked.

The newspaper said heavenly places on earth like Darjeeling and Kashmir were going through difficult times but “some people” are keen on mid-term elections in Maharashtra.

The editorial went on to say that the Shiv Sena was concerned with more important things than winning elections. On the other hand, ‘Dopahar ka Saamna’ said, the BJP was “supporting” anti-national elements in order to hold on to power. “The BJP is supporting Mehbooba Mufti who has been ineffective in Jammu and Kashmir. No one from the Sangh Parivar has had the guts to challenge her,” the newspaper said.

Regarding the troubles in Darjeeling, the Shiv Sena mouthpiece praised West Bengal Chief Minister for doing her best to hold talks with those demanding Gorkhaland. “Those who have political differences with her must not try to take political advantage of the situation,” the newspaper said.

The newspaper went on to say that attempts were being made to cut Shiv Sena down to size for taking a nationalist stand. “When the Sena talks of farmers or Kashmir, attempts are being made to silence us,” it said.
