The Shiv Sena on Wednesday strongly criticised NCP chief Sharad Pawar, saying as Pawar doesn’t have any constructive work, he is indulging in “time-pass,” referring to the leader’s prediction of a split in the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance.
The party, in an editorial in its mouthpiece Saamana, said Pawar was unable to digest the fact that the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance was doing well in Maharashtra and is hence resorting to cracking jokes.
“Pawar doesn’t have any major work these days, so he is doing time-pass. If the makers of the recently-released Marathi movie ‘Timepass 2’ want to produce a ‘Timepass 3,’ they should speak to Pawar. They will get good material,” the editorial said.
“Whatever Pawar says, one should always assume the opposite. If Pawar is saying the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance will split before the Mumbai civic polls, it means there is no threat to the alliance,” the editorial said.
