The Shiv Sena on Friday skilled guns on the Bharatiya Janata Party over the Munger firing incident that left one youth lifeless. Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut termed the incident an assault on Hindutva to query the silence of the BJP and Bihar’s Governor Phagu Chauhan.
He stated that if the incident had taken place in a non-BJP dominated state, the saffron social gathering would have demanded resignations and imposition of the President’s rule.
“Munger firing incident is an attack on Hindutva. If such an incident were to happen in Maharashtra, West Bengal or Rajasthan, Governors and BJP leaders would have demanded President’s rule,” the Rajya Sabha MP stated.
“So, why Bihar Governor and BJP leaders not raising questions?” he requested.

Congress spokesperson Gourav Vallabh has demanded the dismissal of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his deputy Sushil Kumar Modi to make sure the reality comes out and there’s no cover-up.
