Sena alleges political vendetta behind Bhima-Koregaon violence

Mumbai: In wake of the ongoing protests and bandh across Maharashtra against the Bhima-Koregaon violence, the Shiv Sena on Wednesday alleged that someone is trying to gain political advantage by creating all such nuisance across the state.

Speaking to news agency, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said, “There is a 200 years old history but there should be no riots in the name of history. When that war took place all castes and communities were united and fought their enemy together but today we are fighting over castes and communities and celebrating Shaurya Diwas. This is absolutely wrong. There is someone who wants to take political advantage of this situation but the person will be soon exposed.”

Raut further asserted that it is the responsibility of state government irrespective of their party to control the state and keep check on such incidents.

“It is primarily the responsibility of the government, irrespective of their government to keep a check on the how such incidents take place and how people from outside come and give provocative speeches that lead to such incidents.” said Sanjay.
