In its mouth piece Saamana, Sena raised several questions to PM Modi in regards to his promises of bringing black money back to the country.
“ What happened to the promise that was made before the elections to bringing back black money for the nation’s development? In the last two years, how many citizens have received Rs 15 lakh in their bank accounts?” it asked.
“Black money is not restricted to business, Bollywood and terrorists outfits. It is prevalent in politics and it is the need of the hour to address this. One does not need to scout Switzerland or Mauritius to reclaim black money. Modi can succeed in his mission if he unearths black money that is circulating within the country,” it added.
Earlier, in a sharp retort to a local BJP leader’s reported warning of burning copies of its mouthpiece ‘Saamana’, Sena said doing such a thing would be like setting ablaze the RSS’s ideology and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s basic ideals.
“Politics has become murky. Everybody has the right to criticise, but the voices of those trying to speak the truth are being stifled right from Delhi to Maharashtra. This is an example of politics going into the head,” an editorial in ‘Saamana’ said.
Taking a pot shot at PM Modi’s “Mann Ki baat”, Saamana editorial demanded that the Maharashtra BJP leaders too should come on Radio and answer crucial questions.
‘Mann ki baat’ is like hot tea and in a bid to attract listeners,several areas in Mumbai ironically catered free tea. BJP leaders from Mumbai too should come on radio to answer these crucial questions,” the editorial added.
