Thane: In the backdrop of Shiv Sena taking
a dig at BJP over Advani-Narendra Modi `cold war`, the
Maharashtra state BJP unit chief has observed that Bal
Thackeray and party executive president Uddhav Thackeray
should restrict themselves to giving suggestions and not
"Those who cannot do anything only resort to
criticism," state unit BJP president Sudhir Mungattiwar said here.
The remarks came in the background of Bal Thackeray`s
comments that appeared in the editorial in party mouthpiece
`Saamna` amid reports of the recently concluded BJP national
executive meet being overshadowed by a cold war between the
party`s two big guns - L K Advani and Narendra Modi- with the
latter conspicuous by his absence.
The editorial stated that triphala churn" (an
ayurvedic mix of three herbs used to detoxify and rejuvenate
the body) concocted by the RSS, Gadkari and Advani is
troubling the Gujarat chief minister.
Asserting that the Shiv Sena, BJP and RPI alliance is
unbreakable and there is no scope for any "fourth" party to
chip in ahead of the civic polls, Mungattiwar said "even
though there were differences of opinion among the leaders of
BJP and Shiv Sena over seat distribution they (leaders) do not
have any authority to break the alliance. It is only the state
unit which has to take decision on such crucial issues".
He was speaking on the sidelines of a day-long
symposium "Vision 2020-Thane" organised by the Thane unit of
the BJP last evening here.
Rebutting NCP chief Sharad Pawar`s statement that the
proposed rathyatra by L K Advani will be a "silent" one,
Mungattiwar said "it is pity that the NCP chief Sharad Pawar
does not know anything about the rathyatra of Advani".
