Shiv Sena, Editorial, BJP, Narendra Modi

Attacking the central government on many fronts, BJP’s ally Shiv Sena on 26 May alleged that it had failed to rein in inflation, check cross border terrorism and the schemes started during this period did not reach people.

The Narendra Modi government completes two years on 26 May, and second anniversary celebrations are slated on 28 May.

In an editorial in its mouthpiece ‘Saamna’, Sena took a dig at Modi over his frequent foreign trips. Referring to his foreign engagements, the party said the PM should decide if he resides within or outside the country.

“The government started one scheme after another, but people barely know of them. The previous government was running the same schemes, but with different names, which later got embroiled in corruption,” said the party.

The Sena said the government has “failed” to arrest inflation and bring relief to people burdened by price rise and end problems in agri sector.

Attacking the Modi government over holding talks with Pakistan, the Sena said terrorist activities from across the border in Kashmir have not yet stopped.

Taking a jibe at the NDA over its performance in the state polls, the Shiv Sena said people of Bihar, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Kerala have already evaluated the government’s work in their own independent way.
