Taking a jibe at the comic feature called ‘Khau Sena’ which mocks the Shiv Sena, the Nationalist Congress Party( NCP) on Thursday alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) holds equal share in the loot of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, hence the saffron party has no moral right to call other parties ‘corrupt’.
“The cartoon war started in Maharashtra between the BJP and Shiv Sena. The BJP claims that Shiv Sena is a ‘Khau Sena’. The BJP has equal share in the loot of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). In Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’ Cabinet there are 12 corrupt ministers. The BJP is the most corrupt party and they have no moral right to say that other parties are corrupt,” NCP leader Nawab Malik said.
Earlier, the BJP released its own ‘Khau Sena’ cartoon shorts for the upcoming Mumbai civic polls, taking a cue from iconic Hollywood studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s mascot, Leo and replacing it with a tiger.
The ‘Khau Sena’ (corrupt Sena) series that takes a dig at friend-turned-foe Shiv Sena’s alleged corruption in the Mumbai civic body, is a part of the party’s online arsenal for these elections.
The series launched unofficially by the BJP features senior and junior tigers, indicating without naming Uddhav and Aditya Thackeray and takes on Sena’s mismanagement and corruption in the BMC.
