Shiv Sena hits back at Amruta Fadnavis over “Shav” remark

The Shiv Sena on Friday hit outat Amruta Fadnavis, wife of BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis, overher critical remarks against the party and said she shouldrealise that every alphabet was important.

On Thursday, Amruta Fadnavis took a jibe at the UddhavThackeray-led party over its poor performance in the just heldBihar assembly elections and called it “Shav (corpse) Sena”.

Hitting back, the Sena, which heads the MVA governmentin Maharashtra, told her to realise the importance ofalphabets in her own name.

“Dont let the alphabet A in your name go into”mruta” state (dead in Marathi). Realise the importance of Ain your name Amruta.


“Dont bring bad thoughts in your mind during theauspicious occasion of Diwali,” Shiv Sena spokesperson NeelamGorhe, who is also deputy chairperson in the LegislativeCouncil, said in a statement here.

Gorhesaid, “You will not benefit by calling the ShivSena names.” “What is going on exactly? The Shav Sena did kill itsown colleague (Congress) in Bihar. No matter where they aretaking Maharashtra, but thanks for putting Bihar at rightplace,” Amruta Fadnavis, a banker, had tweeted.

Devendra Fadnavis, a former chief minister ofMaharashtra, was the BJPs election in-charge in Bihar, wherehis party put up a stellar show.

The Sena had contested certain assembly seats inBihar, but failed to open its account and most of itscandidates lost their security deposit (getting votes lessthan EC-mandated threshold).

The Congress, which fought in alliance with theRJD, won only 19 of the 70 seats it contested in Bihar withmany observers blaming its poor show for the opposition blocselectoral loss.

The Sena and the Congress are part of the rulingcoalition in Maharashtra.
