In a sort of relief to the youth planning to celebrate Valentine’s Day with fuss and fanfare, Shiv Sena has decided to keep the ‘moral policing’ at bay this year.
Shiv Sena has given clear instructions to its supporters not to harass the lovebirds or else strict action would be taken against them.
Yuva Shiv Sena President, Aditya Thackeray has issued strict directions to not misbehave with any boy or girl on Valentine’s Day. He does not want assault or misbehaviour with youths. “Shiv Sena is against western culture and we have communicated our message during past years. We are not going to assault any couple. If any worker will misbehave or assault any couple, he will be expelled from the party,” said junior Thackeray.
Even, Bajrang Dal’s convener said that the “acts that couples indulge in” on roads and at public places on Valentine’s Day is “similar to nature of animals” and it’s futile to meddle with them.
“It has been decided at the top level of the organisation that our workers will not disturb any couple anymore,” he added.
Till last year, the supporters of Bajrang Dal and Shiv Sena were assaulting the youth found at public places on Valentine’s Day. The activists also ransacked the shops which were found selling Valentine’s Day greeting cards and flowers.
