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.

Shiv Sena has decided to go it alone in the forthcoming Kalyan-Dombivli Municipal Corporation election and not have any tie-up with the BJP with which it shares power in the state and Centre.
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.

Shiv Sena today accused ORF chief Sudheendra Kulkarni, whose face was blackened by party activists, and threatend to scale up its opposition to former Pakistan Foreign Minister Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri’s book launch
Sena leader Sanjay Raut told reporters that “the man who has organised Kasuri s book launch in Mumbai (Sudheendra Kulkarni) is a Pakistani agent(Maharashtra chief minister Devendra) Fadnavisji has publicly said that Khurshid won’t be allowed to have any anti-India view in his programme and if he does, the organiser will be responsible for it. We welcome the CM’s stand.”
Raut said his party has written a letter to Fadnavis giving all proof that “exposes” Kasuri’s “anti-India” stand.
Claiming that Sena has no “political agenda” behind opposing the book launch event, Raut claimed while Khurshid was Foreign Minister of Pakistan, he was responsible for bringing all extremist anti-India organisations together to “suit their Kashmir agenda.”
He said Sena will continue to boycott all events relating to Pakistan citizens till the neighbouring country stops sponsoring terror.
Earlier in the day, an black paint was sprayed on Kulkarni for not bowing down to Sena’s diktat seeking cancellation of events having Pakistani connection.
Recently, stiff opposition from Shiv Sena led to cancellation of Pakistani ghazal singer Ghulam Ali’s concert in Maharashtra.

Shiv Sena Declares Separation,BJP Tangles With Tara Rani Group For Kolhapur Civic[81]Polls

[Mumbai] Shiv Sena Declares Separation With BJP For Kolhapur Civic[81] Polls.As a Result Of Which New Political Triangle Of BJP+SS+Tara Rani Group Is Taking Shape
Shiv Sena has called off its alliance with BJP in Kolhapur in Maharashtra and will contest the upcoming municipal corporation polls on its own.
The election to the 81-member Kolhapur civic body is scheduled to be held later this year.
The split in Kolhapur comes in the backdrop of Sena president Uddhav Thackeray recently saying that his party is keen on winning the Assembly polls in Maharashtra on its own and that they had extended support to BJP in 2014 elections to avoid political instability.
BJP in Kolhapur has decided to have a pre-poll alliance with Tara Rani group, a local political outfit, Sena leader in-charge of Kolhapur Arun Dhudwadkar said.
The outfit was set up by Congress MLC Mahadeo Mahadik.
“People voted for Sena-BJP in the Assembly polls to defeat Congress. But, the BJP has decided to join hands with Congress which is unacceptable to the Sena. Therefore, we are calling off our alliance with BJP for the municipal corporation elections,” he said.
Dudhwadkar said Sena has sought an alliance with RPI(A) and Shethkari Sanghtana MP Raju Shetty for the polls.
In Kolhapur district, the Sena has six MLAs, while BJP and NCP have two each. In Kolhapur city, Shiv Sena won the Assembly seat defeating BJP by 25,000 votes, he said.
When contacted, PWD Minister Chandrakant Patil, who is also the Guardian Minister of the district, said BJP decided to join hands with Tara Rani group since it was a 25-year-old political outfit working for local issues in the city. It has been in power in the local body as well.
“If Kolhapur has to be developed as a smart city, BJP needs such local outfits, well-versed in the local issues, to get power in the municipal corporation. Tara Rani has nothing to do with the Congress. Mahadeo Mahadik headed the outfit many years ago. He is now with the Congress, his son is in the NCP while his nephew is in BJP,” Patil said.

Madrasas,Out Of Main Education Stream,Are De-recognized Which is Not Anti-Religious:SS

[Mumbai] Madrasas ,Out Of Main Education Stream ,Only Are De-recognized Which is Not Anti-Religious
Amid outrage over Maharashtra government’s decision to de-recognise madrasas which only educate students on Islam, the Shiv Sena today said the move should not be seen as one intended to strike a blow to religious education in the state.
The Sena came down heavily on those opposing the state government’s decision and said that protests are being held only due to fears that if Muslims start thinking independently, parties, whose existence lies on playing vote-bank politics will be in danger.
Shiv Sena said in an edit in its mouthpiece ‘Saamana That The government has taken a decision to treat madrasas that do not teach subjects like English+Science+ Mathematics as non-schools. This move should not be seen as one which is pre-conceived or which is intended to strike a blow to religious education. On the contrary, this should be taken as a way to get Muslim children in the mainstream,It further sought to know what is wrong in bringing children who are studying in madrasas to the mainstream and where is the question of spreading communalism with the initiative.
it said.”Muslims have been caught between Islam+ Islamic education +extremism. Thus, while the world is progressing with each passing day, Muslims are only stuck between ignorance + illiteracy,”
The Sena said the government has made it clear that not only madrasas but even religious institutions of other faiths will be classified as non-schools and thus, the government’s move should not be seen as a revenge against the Muslim community.
