The leaders of the Shiv Sena Bala Saheb Thackeray Jammu and Kashmir unit protested and demanded strict action against the PDP President and former Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti against her statement not to lift the tricolour.
Taking a dig at the BJP, the Shiv Sena leaders accused BJP government of not taking out any legal action so that they would capitalize on them in the Bihar elections.
Dozens of party leaders and activists, led by party UT President Manish Sahni, protested and burned the effigy of Mehbooba Mufti and demanded to file a case of malfeasance describing Mehooba statement as anti national.
Sahni said that he feels that as a thought-out strategy, these leaders were released just before the Bihar elections and were given a free hand to speak against the country, so that the BJP leaders could redeem it in the Bihar elections.
He said that this is the same BJP led Central Government, which on August 5, 2019, had arrested all the leaders who had spoken against article 370 and 35a.
She (Mehbooba) was under detention for about 14 months under PSA. Then how suddenly the central government was so kind to these leaders and release of them, freedom was given to speak against the country and mislead the people.
Sahni said that all this is part of the BJP’s well thought out strategy and the statements of these leaders are being used in Bihar elections.
Sahni said that the Shiv Sena demands that those speaking against the nation should be sent behind bars.
He said that it seems from the BJP’s attitude towards taking any legal proceedings over these statements will be executed only after the Bihar elections till then they will attain duff and dump.
Other party workers present on this occasion including Meenakshi Chibber , president Mehila wing , Vikas Bakshi Gen Secretary , Raj Singh secretary , Raju Salaria and Balwant Singh Joint Secretary.
