The Congress on Tuesday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Maharashtra government for their failure to curb Shiv Sena’s persistent demonstrations against Pakistani nationals in Mumbai, asking what could  possibly be stopping Centre from taking action against the Sainiks.

“Is Maharashtra not part of India? Whoever enters Maharashtra now is going to need a visa from the Shiv Sena? The Prime Minister needs to answer this. The government needs to stick to its policy on Pakistani nations who come here. If the government gives someone the visa to enter the country, no one has the authority to stop them on brute strength alone,” Congress leader Rashid Alvi said.

Further expressing his disappointment over the ‘unfortunate’ series of incidents by the Shiv Sena in Mumbai, Alvi questioned the Bharatiya Janata Party-led (BJP) Maharashtra government’s inability to take action.

“The Maharashtra government has clearly become a silent spectator. Why are they not taking action? Why is Uddhav Thackeray not being arrested?

The Shiv Sena came in for heavy criticism yesterday for derailing the BCCI-PCB talks by storming the HQ of the Indian cricket board in Mumbai.

Shiv Sena activists had stormed the BCCI office and disrupted a crucial meeting with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to protest against the India-Pakistan cricket series slated to be held later this year.

Following the protest, the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Monday withdrew Pakistani umpire Aleem Dar from the remaining matches of the ongoing India-South Africa series.

    So according to Rashid Alvi Shiv Sena should be denied their consutional right to protest because his "brothers" from stan are having a difficult time ? Who gave him the authority to suspend the Consutional Rights of lakhs of Shiv Seniks to appease his friends ?? Mumbai is a city that suffered the most due to stani sponsored terrorism and the people of Mumbai , particularly the Shiv Seniks are not ready to forget and forgive the Paksitanis or give them any quarter. The Govt of India granting a visa does not mean these people are immune from criticism or facing protests . Mumbai is not Karachi or La that stanis have a birth right to enter and leave as and when they please.
