Sena defuses BJP’s 'transparency' plank
Bandra - The ‘transparency’ seems to be focal point of the forthcoming BMC elections as the Shiv Sena has put the BJP on back foot by demanding transparency in the State and the Central government’s functioning. Paying back BJP in the same coin, prominent Shiv Sena leader and MLC Anil Parab asked that why the BJP-led Central government did not show the transparency while taking the decision of demonetisation. If it would have been the transparent decision, such a chaos would have not happened, he claimed. Parab also taunted the BJP by suggesting the party to involve the Leader of Opposition and the journalists in the Cabinet meetings so that transparency can be maintained. He belittled BJP MP Kirit Somaiya and said that Shiv Sena does not take him seriously and it will do so when Somaiya’s allegations are backed by the BJP officially.
