Shiv Sena today slammed the Congress for holding Narendra Modi responsible for the violence in Assam, saying those levelling such charges are the ones who have divided the country and should practice meditation at Ramdev's ashram as they have ‘lost their mental balance.'
BJP's oldest ally also targeted Congress leader Kapil Sibal, saying it has never seen him "taking up the cause of Hindus in Kashmir as he did for Bangladeshi Muslims in Assam". The comments have been made in an editorial in the party’s mouthpiece in Saamna.
Congress on Sunday attacked BJP and its prime ministerial candidate for the violence in Assam, saying it was a result of "communal polarisation" done by them to garner votes. Thirty four people were killed, several others injured and many rendered homeless in two districts of Assam after attacks by NDFB-S militants.
