Mumbai: In yet another scathing attack on the Narendra Modi-led BJP dispensation at the Centre, Shiv Sena had called it a “useless government” in connection with its low key response to Indian soldiers' beheading by Pakistan's BAT.

Targeting the BJP regime, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray said on Wednesday that saving the country is more important than saving cows at the moment.

Uddhav also slammed the BJP for strengthening only their party but not the country. 

Uddhav had been conducting a series of meetings with key Shiv Sena office bearers, corporators, legislators along with party ministers since the past couple of days. 

He criticised the state government and its ally BJP several times while speaking at these meetings, according to New Indian Express. 

Uddhav also dared the BJP to go for mid-term polls as early as possible. 

“If you feel others would get frightened if you mention mid-term polls, let me tell you we are not from that lot. If you tell us that you would conduct mid-term polls tomorrow, I would say, conduct it today,” Uddhav is believed to have said at the meeting. 

Uddhav also dared Modi to teach an everlasting lesson to Pakistan. “Pakistan won’t learn a lesson with just one surgical strike. You will have to enter Pakistan and divide it into pieces. Shiv Sena would be there with you,” he said.
