Worsened drift between Centre and State could lead to an inevitable divide: Shiv Sena


n Sunday, Shiv Sena led Maharashtra government made a scathing remark against the ruling party at centre BJP that the worsening relations between Centre and State governments could lead to fatal repercussions in future. "In times approaching us, we are heading for disintegration of states in country like Soviet Union," Shiv Sena said. The editorial in party's mouthpiece, Saamana highlighted and attacked the Supreme Court of country to have forgotten many obligations and responsibilities in several matters of grave attention. With increasing tiff between the parties at two levels, the stability of administration is swaying in a loose cradle.

"The focus of the hour should be paid on Centre's attempts to harm people and their interests for political gains. If this won't be addressed then Indian States might break away like Soviet Union soon. The year 2020 has posed a question mark on governance and vows of the central government and challenged its credibility," the editorial said. The Marathi daily read that BJP leader Vijayvargiya made a controversial disclosure, that Prime Minister Narendra Modi pulled special efforts to dethrone Congress' Kamal Nath government in Madhya Pradesh. This revelation has raised several questions like, "Is PM developing a special interest in destabilizing state governments? PM stands for country and country stands as federation of states. States with non-BJP governments are being suppressed and their rights to voice about national interest are being killed."

Shiv Sena also alleged the centre of making unlawful attempts to overthrow Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Mamta Banerjee from power. "Fully surged and overcrowded rallies, roadshows are being organized under leadership of the Home Minister. In some states like Maharashtra night curfews were enforced to check the spread of virus. The rule makers have turned breakers," it further said.

Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray led party's editorial accused the centre to make exceptions to save Kangana Ranaut and Arnab Goswami. The editorial further said when Chinese troops made efforts to enter India by extending its boundaries, they failed to force them back instead mislead the attention of people by using nationalism. Boycott of goods, services and investment from China was promoted to divert the focus from the problem at hand. Moreover, it blamed the government for constructing a new parliament building worth 1000 crores when citizens of the country are starving to death on the streets. Unreal issues are addressed while main ones are forced under the carpet.
