Shiv Sena’s Saamana compares Congress to old cot making noise, says Uddhav should be prepared

Shiv Sena has taken a dig at its Maharashtra coalition partner Congress and said the party led by Sonia Gandhi is like an “old cot that starts to squeak every now and then”.

Saamana, the Shiv Sena mouthpiece has written in its editorial, “When a CM is elected, his decision is final in all matters. Sharad Pawar himself abides by this rule and meets the chief minister every now and then and gives suggestions. Even Congress is doing good work but every now and then like an old cot it starts to squeak.”

“It is an old party with history but in this cot there are many party heavyweights which is the reason why the old cot is making sound. CM should be ready to face this from Congress,” the Saamana article has said further.

The Saamana article has also said that when Uddhav Thackeray became the chief minister six months ago, he was welcomed in the entire nation. However, many questions were raised on the government’s duration as three parties with different ideologies came together and Uddhav Thackeray was chosen the CM.

“The Congress president and Balasahib has measured way of showing displeasure and he says he will talk to chief minister. Ashok Chavan too was balanced. Both will meet the chief minister as they feel bureaucrats are creating problems in the Maharashtra government,” read the Saamana article.

The editorial further said, “There are reports of problems with chief secretary Ajoy Mehta and Nagpur municipal chief Tukaram Munde. They are all under the CM and the matter can be discussed.”
