BJP Legislator’s Remark On Shiv Sena Bhavan Fuels Verbal Combat Between the Parties

Verbal Battle between BJP and Shiv Sena…Get the details

Monday, 2nd August 2021

A heated verbal confrontation sparked off between the Bharatiya Janata Party and Shiv Sena after an alleged remark by a Maharashtra BJP legislator about the Shiv Sena headquarters.

On Sunday, Shiv Sena leader, Sanjay Raut said that the Marathi people would not pardon the “drug addict politicians”, to which former chief minister of Maharashtra and BJP stalwart Devendra Fadnavis reacted stating that if anyone attacks the party, it is well aware of how to counter it.

During a BJP function that was underway on Saturday, member of the State Legislative Council, Prasad Lad said that, if the need arises, the Shiv Sena Bhavan that houses the Sena headquarters at Dadar in Central Mumbai, would be pulled down.

The words were later recanted and Lad also expressed his regret and stated that his remarks were splashed by the media out of context.

He even released a video statement in which he said, “I have the highest regard for the late Balasaheb Thackeray and I consider Sena Bhavan as a sacred abode. How can I speak against the Sena Bhavan" What I meant was that the BJP is a major power and it will prove its might against political rival Sena in the upcoming BMC polls. Last month, the Sena had attacked our activists outside the Sena Bhavan. So it was a political reply. It was certainly not directed at the Sena supremo or the Bhavan.”

The words however, outraged the Shiv Sena members and a verbal duel soon emerged between the two parties who once were ruling allies in the state.

Shiv Sena's chief spokesperson and a Rajya Sabha member, Raut slammed the BJP saying there was an “urgent need to undertake a drug de-addiction programme” in Maharashtra, and added, “Otherwise, Marathi manoos on the footpath of Shiv Sena Bhavan will not spare these drug-addict politicians. Shiv Sena Bhavan is a shining symbol of Marathi identity Samajhne walo ko ishara kafi hai (A hint is enough for the one who understands).”

Shiv Sena supremo Uddhav Thackeray also, earlier that day, said in a function in Mumbai that they will not tolerate any sort of intimidating tone and are ready to give a fitting reply if needed.

Thackeray said in his speech, “Nobody should speak the language of slapping us as we will give back such a tight slap that the other person will not be able to get back on his feet.”
