MUMBAI: ‘Shiv Sena Bhavan in Mumbai is not just a headquarter of a political party, but a symbol of Maharashtra's identity and no one should dare cast an evil eye on it’, it is said by Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Thursday
Shiv Sena and BJP workers were at loggerheads outside the Shiv Sena Bhavan at Dadar in central Mumbai on Wednesday after the youth wing of the BJP took out a protest march against the "offensive" remarks in the Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana' about the land deal controversy in Ayodhya. It was based this situation that the Shiv Sena leader said this remark.
Sena MLA Sada Sarvankar had said his partymen had got information that the BJP workers were coming to vandalise the Sena Bhavan.
"If some one tries to attack the premises, will Marathi 'manoos' (person) and Shiv sainik keep quiet?" he asked. "Why did the BJP get so agitated? What did the Sena editorial say? It just sought clarification on the allegations and demanded that if the charges are proved false, those who levelled them should be punished.
"Is asking for a clarification a crime in this country? The editorial nowhere mentions that the BJP is involved in it."Can't you read and write? First understand what the allegations are and what the Shiv Sena spokespersons have said. Are you educated or not?" he said.
