Mumbai: The Shiv Sena on Saturday slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government at the Centre for the recent “violence, bloodbaths and series of killings” in Kashmir. The Sena criticised the Modi government for the unilateral ceasefire in Kashmir and said “internal security in India is becoming a joke.”

The Shiv Sena lashed out over the series of killings in the Kashmir valley and on the border where Indian soldiers were martyred and innocent citizens lost their lives. In its mouthpiece Saamana, the party slammed Mr Modi over his external affairs policy. Mr Modi is always going out of the country, and the foreign affairs minister is busy with party work while the home minister is not doing anything. We have unilaterally declared a ceasefire during Ramzan, but Pakistan-supported terrorists have taken the undue advantage of this and killed our soldiers, the editorial read.

Flaying the BJP-led government for not fulfilling the promise of seeing to it that the Ram Mandir is built in Ayodhya, the editorial read, “The PM is busy with foreign tours and still the United Nations objected to violation of human rights in Kashmir. We have not made our case properly at the international level and before United Nation.”

The editorial further read, "The Modi government has exacerbated the Kashmir situation with its policies, which are worse than those of the Congress regime and former Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. The government has taken care of Mr Modi's security, which was increased after a 'flying object' was found near the Prime Minister's residence, but the government is not taking proper care of the security of citizens and soldiers in Kashmir, the editorial read.
