Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece mocks Prime Minister Modi’s death threat

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had received a death threat from the Maoists who were planning a ‘Rajiv Gandhi’ style assassination.

While the security forces have been able to stop the assassination attempt, what they cannot stop is the sarcastic comments and mockery.

The Shiv Sena has published an editorial in its mouthpiece Saamana, mocking the letter issuing the death threat to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This comes after a day the party claimed that Pranab Mukherjee would be the RSS’s candidate for Prime Minister.

In its mouthpiece, the Sena writes that the letter is both ‘interesting and dangerous’. The letter then sarcastically added, “Citizens may die, but the PM cannot.”

But it is not only the Shiv Sena who mocked the death threat.

Claiming the BJP is losing its power National Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar also mocked the letter, which is why it has resorted to this ‘conspiracy’.

Pawar was speaking at a rally organized to celebrate 19 anniversary of the party and valedictory function of the party’s Halla Bol agitation in the state.

Speaking on the issue of recent statements reports that PM Modi and CM Fadnavis have received threats allegedly by Maoists, Pawar said, “After these reports of threat letters, a retired police officer told me that when such letters come, it does not go to media but it goes to the security agencies and additional security measures are taken.”

“In case of threat letters to BJP leaders, the authenticity of these letters is yet to be proved. BJP is losing the popularity in these four years and to gain it again, they are coming up with these tactics, however, people will not fall prey for it,” Pawar added.

Pawar also criticised the government over recent action of the arrest of five people for alleged connection with Maoists. He said, “Some like-minded progressive people came together and they held Elgaar Parishad in Pune but the government put them behind bars and they are being branded as Naxalites.”

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis also claimed that he received two threat letters allegedly from Maoist organisations which were handed over to the police, sources in the state Home Department said today.
