Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece Saamna on Tuesday, claimed that although there was no participation of RSS in the freedom struggle, Congress provided tremendously to it and possessed various brave leaders and party workers. Further, the mouthpiece kept on attacking the Congress
, the party which is the alliance partner of Shiv Sena
, stating that at present the party is a confused party, which is not able to decide about the actions it is going to take place in the future there is lack of sense of direction.
“The courageous cadre the Congress party had at the time of pre-independence seems to be lost now. It is stated by the Congress leader that there is no place for cowards in the party. But if all of them leave the party, it has to be seen if the party has a factory which can generate courageous workers,” stated the Saamna editorial.
It was stated in the past that the Congress party had leaders who set forth powerful patriotic values. “But as we see the current situation the party is grappling for it to be alive. How would the Congress or the pretended to be secular parties be powerful by targeting the Sangh Parivar?”
Further, the editorial went on to cheer up the RSS, stating the Sangh has a powerful connection all over the country which is the strength of BJP
. “Even though there may be dissimilarity in the ideology, the work performed by the RSS is important. And the dedicated swayamsevak and pracharak should not be ignored. Congress party too had such dedicated workers in the past, but in some states, there is no one now. Shiv Sena comprises of such devoted people.”
When asked Congress President Nana Patole about the editorial, he answered that the editorial has yet not been read by him so will not be able to make any comments. Further, he stated that “It is the right of every citizen to criticize in the democracy, but it is our right whether or not to react to it.”
