Mumbai - BJP MP Kirit Somaiya has lashed out at Shiv Sena by replying to the barbs of Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray. Somaiya said that crows are required for shraaddha (ritual after death) of the mafia raj and corruption in the BMC. It is pertinent to mention here that Thackeray had said in presence of chief minister Devendra Fadnavis that there are many crows in the city who keep using their beaks to speak against the functioning of the BMC. Taking a cue from this statement, Somaiya gave a strong reply to the ally party. This is likely to fuel the ongoing slugfest between these two ruling partners.
