Sena backs Bhosale's remarks on demonetisation

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

The today supported MP Udayan Raje Bhosale's remarks that people will "loot and destroy banks" if the situation arising after the move does not improve soon, saying he has voiced the concerns of people on the chaos.

Bhosale, a descendant of Maratha warrior king Chhatrapati Shivaji, while speaking at a function to pay homage to late Deputy Prime Minister YB Chavan at Sangli in the presence of several political bigwigs last week, had also said many MPs and MLAs who were his close friends too have not accepted the decision.


"Chhatrapati's anguish has represented the feelings of common man. At one time, Udayan Raje had joined and was even made a minister so cannot him disown him now. If the government has courage, it should challenge Udayan Raje's statements," the Sena said in an editorial in party mouthpiece 'Saamana'.

It said Bhosale has time and again voiced the concerns of people.

"After PM Modi's decision, people in rural areas have suffered a lot. Yet, no leader from rural areas is ready to speak against it. These leaders have their hands full with old notes and they are now in a piquant situation as they cannot remove that money nor can they keep it as it is," the Sena said.

"During the British rule, Indians in Satara used to loot banks and government treasury. Udayan Raje, from the same Satara has warned the government that people will loot banks to live. Will the government shoot these people?" the Sena asked.
