Bharatiya Janata Party.

Uddhav Thackeray’s party Shiv Sena said in an editorial in its mouthpiece Saamana that the expansion of Mumbai and its ever increasing population has been causing infrastructure failure.

Nowhere in the editorial did the party mention who was actually responsible for a portion foot over bridge (FOB) collapsing on Thursday evening near the busy Mumbai CSMT railway station, that killed six people and injured more than 30.

Nor did the party blame the Maharashtra government led by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is in an alliance with the Sena, or the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).

In fact, the party said that the government has given compensation to family members of the deceased and will look after the injured. It added that the opposition will keep indulging in politics over the issue.
