In its latest attack on former ally BJP, the Shiv Sena on Monday (November 30) said the central agencies like Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) “should be sent to the borders” to stop terrorists from entering Jammu and Kashmir.
In an editorial in its mouthpiece Saamana, the Sena hit out at the Narendra Modi government over the treatment of the farmers who are protesting against the Centre’s new farm laws, and also accused it of using central agencies to target the opposition parties.

“The government thinks to stop opposition, they can use the ED, CBI. Hence these agencies should be given an opportunity to prove their valour. Every time bullets don’t work. At Delhi’s border, our farmers are called terrorists while terrorists are entering the J&K border. At such times, ED and CBI should be sent to the borders. There is no other option…,” the editorial said.
Recently, Sena MLA Pratap Sarnaik’s properties were raided by the ED in connection with a money laundering case. The ruling Maharashtra party has accused the central government of targeting him.
The Sena said the BJP is inviting autocracy and is bringing the “Khalistan topic” to do politics in Punjab. “The BJP is not just ruining the country’s environment but is also inviting autocracy. The Khalistan topic is over and for that Indira Gandhi and General Arun Kumar Vaidya laid down their lives. But BJP wants to bring that topic up again and do politics in Punjab. If this ignites spark then it will be disastrous for the country,” the editorial said.
