Shiv Sena warns BJP: Separating Vidarbha like separating mother from child

Its hypocrisy on the part of BJP to now talk about carving out a separate state: Shiv Sena

Describing Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) stand on separate statehood for Vidarbha akin to “protectors becoming perpetrators”, the Shiv Sena today reminded its former ally of the resounding mandate it got in Vidarbha and said the vote was in favour of development and not for a separate statehood.

“The BJP won handsomely in the Vidarbha region in the recently held Assembly elections. But they should not think they have got this mandate to divide Maharashtra. Separating Vidarbha from Maharashtra is like separating a child from its mother,” the Sena said in an edit in its mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.

“When a CM who hails from Vidarbha talks about its separation, it is just like the protector of Maharashtra getting ready to become a perpetrator or wrongdoer,” it added.

The Sena said that instead of speaking about separation of Vidarbha, the BJP should concentrate on developing the region.
“While on his first visit to Nagpur after becoming the CM, (Devendra) Fadnavis said that Vidarbha will be carved out at an appropriate time. Instead, he should have spoken about the development of the region. He should have spoken about empowering the security agencies in Naxal-hit areas like Gadchiroli and Chandrapur,” the Sena said.

Its hypocrisy on the part of BJP to now talk about carving out a separate state, when the same party accused the Congress of making a mistake when it created Telangana from Andhra Pradesh, it said.

“We only hope that the ‘Fadnavis Express’ runs straight on the path of development of Vidarbha and does not wobble in between. The CM should working towards fulfilling the dreams of 105 martyrs who sacrificed their lives for ‘Akhand (united) Maharashtra,” the Sena added.

    Dear Mr.Uddhav Thakre ,the problem of Mr.Modi and his party is not the development ,but how much gain they could got from the deeds which are not suitable for the common people. They don't know the sacrifices made by great leaders for the united Maharastra. Since,the Mr.Modi's party and the erstwhile party Jana sangh could not partite in the said movement as in the case of freedom movement.So, they don't care for the united Maharastra.Really,they have opposed the separation of Andhra on the hope that the TRS party may join with congress. So, Mr.Modi and his party never care for the welfare of the people. Please,sit in the opposition bench instead of Treasury bench.
