Taking a swipe at the ongoing power struggle in the Aam Adami Party, Shiv Sena has targetted the party and its convenor Arvind Kejriwal in the latest editorial of its mouthpiece Saamana, congratulating AAP for joining the bandwagon of Indian politics.
It has further said that that the condition of the country's newest party is no different from any other political party.
The editorial says, "Hammam mein sab nange" or that AAP is no different from other political parties and it has joined the mainstream politics of India.
The article adds that AAP is in the news not for its governance but for the ongoing internal rift in the party and goes on to warn other politicians not to happily point fingers at AAP.
Writing about Delhi chief minister, the Saamna article says, "Kejriwal promotes transparent governance, but it won’t change the truth that the way YoYa and Prashant Bhushan were declared traitors and thrown out of the party is just terrible. YoYa and PB’s fault was – they opposed Kejriwal."
"People of Delhi had elected AAP with lots of hope, but the party has shown that its not different from other political parties.
The editorial has compared AAP with the erstwhile Janta Party.
It says, "The way Janata Party had come to power after defeating Indira Gandhi (AAP defeated Modi in Delhi), and then Janata Party suffered breakup… the same is the condition with Kejriwal today.
The edit even took a dig at Kejriwal ‘coughing’ problem: "After visiting Bangalore for naturopathy, Kejriwal has stopped coughing and so he started a new trend of removing people from his party."
