After smearing paint on Sudheendra Kulkarni’s face, the Shiv Sena on Tuesday chided him heavily in ‘Saamana’.
The party also defended the six arrested attackers by terming them “rashtrabhakt” (nationalists).
In a sharp edit in the party mouthpiece Saamana, the Sena – an important constituent of the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) at the Centre – said that Kulkarni despite being shamed roamed all around with a black face.
It also said that with people like Sudheendra Kulkarni present in India, Pakistan need not bother sending those terrorists like Ajmal Kasab.
“People like Sudheendra Kulkarni sitting in India would cause more harm than what 100 Kasabs could ever do,” the Sena said.
Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Monday called Kulkarni a “Pakistani agent” and said that the latter was responsible for bringing all extremist anti-India organisations together to “suit their Kashmir agenda.”
Recently, stiff opposition from Shiv Sena led to cancellation of Pakistani ghazal singer Ghulam Ali’s concert in Maharashtra.
