Disastrous!: BJP Slams Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray For Comparing JNU Violence To 26/11

Maha BJP leader Shaina NC on Monday responded to Maha CM Uddhav Thackeray's comparison of JNU violence to the 26/11 terror attack and called it 'disastrous'

After Maharashtra Chief Minister and Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Monday made a shocking statement and compared the incident of violence on the campus of JNU with "26/11 terror attacks" in Mumbai, Maharashtra BJP leader Shaina NC reacted to Maha CM's remark and called it 'disastrous'.

"To compare JNU with 26/11 terror attacks is disastrous. Our nation was attacked by terrorists on 26/11, are you suggesting that the students that attacked or were attacked are terrorists? We need to unite at this time and fight collectively. BJP and ABVP had already stated that nobody should take the law into their hands and ABVP would not engage in an act of violence like this because it is a responsible student organisation," she said.

Adding further to her statement, Shaina NC said, " If there is any propaganda or vendetta politics, then it needs to be dismissed totally."

Earlier in the day, Shaina NC had also taken to her official Twitter handle and shared a video of ABVP where the student organisation had alleged 'left parties' of attacking JNU.
