Mumbai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s comments about a conspiracy being hatched to defame him and destabilize his government in a rally in Odisha, have irked their ally Shiv Sena. The Sena mouthpiece, “Saamna”, wrote scathing remarks questioning the stability of the Modi Government in the wake of the increased terror activities and “anti-national elements” referring to the JNU issue.
Modi, in the rally at Bargarh in Odisha, spoke critically of black marketeers and NGOs as he claimed that they were trying to “defame” him and create political turmoil in the country. Countering this comment the paper asked whether the Government was being able to govern the country well enough and keep it stable. “Saamna” wrote “But, looking at the current turn of events, will the country remain stable? Governments come and go, but let the country remain intact.”
The editorial mouthpiece, although agreed with him about the conspiracy being hatched to defame him, it spoke about the Pathankot attack followed by the continuous stream of terrorist activity from Pakistan and the growing anger among the people against our neighbor. “When the army can fire bullets at the citizens of our county, why cannot they treat people who raise ISIS flags in the Kashmir valley in the same way”, the editorial asked.
It also spoke about the issue of farmers’ suicide in Maharashtra that has spread from Vidarbha to northern Maharashtra and Marathwada region. Referring to the revenue loss because of the Jat agitation in Haryana, the Sena has once again taken on the NDA government for their failure to effectively maintain peace and stability in the country.
