New Delhi, June 12 : The Shiv Sena, through its mouthpiece ” Saamna ” has slammed Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan over the recent farmers protest which turned into a violent clash.
Editorial article titled ‘First bullet, then fast’ in Saamna, precised the turbulence in Madhya Pradesh’s Mandsaur district which farmers are witnessing from last few days.
Hitting out at Shivraj Singh Chauhan, the article asserted “Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister is following the footsteps of Mahatma Gandhi. Shivraj ji was deemed as the idle chief minister. Despite of welfare policies for farmers, women and common people, the farmers staged protest and five lost their lives”.
However, Sena said neither Chouhan ignored the farmers protest nor played any politics over it by terming the agitation as anti-social act.
Continuing its target on the Bharatiya Janata Party, Sena mouthpiece recalled BJP’s dual standard for critcising Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal strike against the central government.
“Recently, the BJP criticised the Delhi Chief Minister for staging protest against the Centre. He was advised to solve public’s issue instead of staging protest,” an editorial stated.
“This same applies to Chief Minister Chouhan, who is following the ideology of Mahatma Gandhi by going on fast. Is it possible to solve everyone’s problem by adopting Gandhi’s ideology? First they fire bullets, then sit on fast ,” it asserted.
