The former BJP-ally Shiv Sena has lashed out at the Centre on the violence erupted in the northeastern part of Delhi that resulted in the deaths of not less than 38 people.
The Shiv Sena also found fault with the Union Home Minister Amit Shah not responding to the violence and unrest at the national capital.
"The dust of Delhi riots is making us blind and Home Minister Amit Shah is seen nowhere. This is something he should be worried about. Questions are being asked as to where Amit Shah was when Delhi was burning?" the Shiv Sena asked the BJP.
"Ajit Doval was seen on the roads meeting people. When will people get to see the home minister? [Amit] Shah was seen during Delhi election distributing pamphlets," the Sena asked.
In its mouthpiece Saamana, the Shiv Sena has termed the Delhi violence as anti-national and also took a dig at the Centre that while the Delhi is burning with the violence and unrest the BJP is busy folding hands before the US President Donald Trump in Ahmedabad.
"Instigating speeches have become politics. The economy of the country is going through a crisis, but the focus is on hate speeches," Saamana's editorial read.
