“Where is the Diwali of achche din”, the Shiv Sena today asked the Centre and said the festival will end on Saturday but what about the ‘diwala’ (bankruptcy) of the economy. The Sena slammed the BJP-led government’s key policy decisions such as demonetisation and GST and said people should start preparing to pay back the government for “playing with their feelings”.

“Today the situation in the country is such that falsehood is being spread everywhere. People have to start their preparation to pay back the government for making false hopes and playing with their feelings,” an editorial in the Sena’s mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ said. “While performing the Laxmi puja on Diwali festival, people should pray that the demonetisation monster would not create havoc again and take away their hard earned money,” it said. The note ban and the GST had left the economy in shambles and the construction sector and traders are waiting for customers for the last 11 months, the Sena said.

“The Diwali festival will end on Saturday. But, what about the ‘diwala’ (bankruptcy) of the economy that has happened? Where is the diwali of ‘achche din’? Why there is no end to suicide by farmers? Why does the load-shedding which was permanently ended by the previous government starts again?” it asked. “Why did those who said they will bring down the inflation failed to do that? Why are industries and businesses failing? Why is unemployment increasing? Why stopping us from celebrating our own festivals and bursting crackers? Many such questions have left people helpless,” the Sena said, questioning the Centre.

      What is the definition of Ache DIn? Get up early , Do Yoga and hear all good promises coming from top political leaders, forget about the past miseries and expect all good things to happen in future.Continue to entertain good hopes and have always good thoughts and hear always good promises coming from all good leaders. Develop this habit of living on good hopes . Ache DIn Ayega.

        1. Shiv Sena (SS) and BJP are alliance partners in Maharashtra and Shiv Sena's nominee is a minister in the Central government. However, SS continues to be critical of NDA government and PM Shri Modi in particular. 2. Sena has a very strange relationship with Mr. Narendra Modi. SS chief Mr. Uddhav Thackeray thinks that in Maharashtra BJP is the stumbling block for SS to get control of complete power in the state. In 2014 Assembly election Shiv Sena lost its top position to BJP and that happened only on account of Shri Modi's popularity in Maharashtra in 2014. 3. I think SS chief knows that if SS breaks its alliance with BJP the party will split and a section of its MLAs will walk away and give support to BJP. Hence for some more time SS chief will continue to criticise BJP and Mr. Narendra Modi’s policies. But for how long is of course a question that can be answered only by BJP’s top leadership and SS chief.

          Shiv Sena needs to focus on administration and governance rather than barking incessantly. No one takes whiners seriously.
