Shiv Sainiks Take to Social Media to Mock Modi Govt, releases posters targeting BJP

Mumbai/Nagpur: Escalating its turf war against the BJP government, Shiv Sena released a series of posters on the social media questioning Modi and BJP’s performance in the last two years.

The posters doing rounds on Facebook and WhatsApp in Maharashtra are depicting how the Union government had failed on many fronts like rise of crime against women, Swacch Bharat Abhiyaan, etc have been made which show the statistics different than that claimed by the government.

While the first poster questions the slogan ‘desh badal raha hai ‘ saying ‘kya sach main desh badal raha hai?, another one talks about farmers and how government has ignored farmers who have been forced to commit suicide.




Other posters challenge government’s claim with their own statistics on job creation, petrol prices and unrest on university campuses.


Shiv Sena’s public relation wing head says that these are not released by Shiv Sena. “Shivsainiks seem to have put them up as a reaction to the propaganda being spread on social media by the BJP”.


Even though Shiv Sena has not officially taken the responsibility for these posters but the posters are in line with Shiv Sena’s criticism of Modi government’s performance in its mouthpiece Saamana.


Even though the BJP is choosing to ignore this anti campaign by alliance partner but it’s likely that Shiv Sena will get some reaction on social media by BJP.

This social media war has made it clear that both alliance partners are going to be diehard opponents in upcoming municipal corporations elections in Maharashtra due in February 2017
