The Shiv Sena's mouthpiece, Saamna, has attacked the Centre in its editorial, claiming that the Bharatiya Janata Party
(BJP)-led government is "addicted to apologizing." The speech made by Union Home Minister Amit Shah in parliament over Nagaland civilian killings was the subject of Saamna's column.
The gunfire incident in Mon area, which left 14 citizens dead and many more injured, was a case of mistaken identity,' according to the Home Minister. Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'apology' to the nation after announcing the repeal of three farm rules is also included in Shiv Sena
"Commit crimes, kill people, and apologize if the matter isn't settled," the Shiv Sena mouthpiece says, taking a jab at the Centre.
Amit Shah, speaking in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday about the tragedy, which claimed the lives of 13 civilians and a jawan, said the vehicle transporting the villagers was not properly equipped.
The Shiv Sena's mouthpiece chastised the government for referring to the demonstrators as "Khalistan supporters." Saamna editorials have consistently challenged the policies of the Narendra Modi government in the centre since the Congress-NCP and Shiv Sena formed a coalition in Maharashtra. These attacks come out when the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) elections 2022, are around the corner, these allegations and counter-attacks would determine the outcome.
