ShivSena,Annoyed With BJP,Now Turns Towards NCP&Tags Pawar With”Leech”

[Mumbai,Maharashtra] Annoyed With BJP, Shiv Sena[SS] Now Turns Towards NCP And Stings Sharad Pawar,
SS Tags NCP to “blood sucking leech”Pawar Earlier Has Called SS “Ants”
In a vitriolic attack on Sharad Pawar for equating the Shiv Sena to “ants that will be stuck to jaggery of power,” the ruling alliance partner today described NCP as “blood sucking leech” waiting to join hands with the BJP to be a part of Maharashtra government.
“Before calling others ants, it would have been better if Pawar had self-introspected.
The NCP is infamous for sucking the blood of Maharashtra like leeches. These are leeches whose stomach will remain empty despite sucking out all the blood of the state,” the Sena said in stinging remarks in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.
Pawar had recently said that power was like a block of jaggery and termed the BJP and Shiv Sena as ants drawn to it, sucking as much sweetness as they could.
On Pawar’s taunt that Sena was hungry for power and would not “dare” to leave the government, the Sena said the Maratha strongman first needs to answer why the NCP stuck to power with the Congress for 10 years, despite being humiliated several times by its ally.
“You spoke of (Congress president) as being a foreigner, but ate Italian pizza with her for 10 years.
Congress leaders accused the NCP of corruption. (Former Maharashtra Chief Minister) Prithviraj Chavan abused the NCP time and again. But the way the NCP still stuck to power is nothing but a miracle,” the editorial said.
The Sena claimed that Pawar is waiting for an opportunity to come to power.
“The truth is that Pawar is only waiting for an opportunity to come to power in the government after the Sena-BJP alliance breaks,” it said.
“After the (Maharashtra) Assembly polls (last year), this was the same NCP that tried to cling onto the ‘pro-Hindutva’ BJP like ants,” the Sena said.

As per sources, The decision was taken last night at a meeting of senior Sena leaders
The development comes after Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis chided the Shiv Sena for bringing the state a bad name due to the protests against former Pakistan Foreign Minister Khurshid Mahmood Kasuri’s book launch in Mumbai.
Shiv Sena is all set to contest all 122 seats alone. The KDMC elections are to be held on November 1.
The Shiv Sena opposed the launch of Kasuri’s book “Neither a Hawk, Nor a Dove: An Insider Account of Pakistan’s Foreign Policy” saying there should be no engagement with Pakistan as long as it supports terror attacks on Indian soil.
Yesterday, Shiv Sena blackened former BJP adviser and columnist Sudheendra Kulkarni, who was the organiser of the event where Kasuri’s book was launched.
Fadnavis, disapproving of the Sena’s protests, said last evening that it had brought disrepute to the state.
“We cannot endorse Kasuri, but can’t let our state turn into banana republic. The rule of law has prevailed. I think the way things have happened has brought a bad name to our state. There could have been better ways to put forth a point of view,” he had said.Kasuri’s book was released last night amid heavy security.
