He also said the unlocking process in Delhi started too early, leading to the current spike in COVID-19 cases in that country.

Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut claimed on Sunday that BJP leaders in Maharashtra oppose every move by the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government led by Uddhav Thackeray just for fun.

In his weekly column ‘Rokhthok’ in Sena spokesperson ‘Saamana’, Mr Raut, referring to the controversy over the reopening of places of worship in the state, said those who link the fight against COVID -19 to ‘Hindutva’ are “enemies” of people.

He also said the unlocking process in Delhi started too early, leading to the current spike in COVID-19 cases in that country.

Blaming the Delhi government’s “overconfidence” for the current crisis, the Sena’s top spokesman feared another lockdown in the nation’s capital.

“Markets, public places and places of worship will be closed again. Why did this happen, the leaders of the BJP in Maharashtra should think… that they oppose any initiative of the MVA government for the sake of it, ”he said.

The Rajya Sabha member further said that BJP leaders had organized protests against their request for permission to celebrate “Chhath Puja” in Maharashtra.

“You may have won the Bihar polls, but there is no need to drag the Bihari people of Mumbai into controversy. Lakhs of people are gathering on the Mumbai seashore and in the pandemic it is illegal, ”he said.

BJP governments have refused permission for Chhath Puja in public places in Gujarat, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, but the party is demanding the same in Maharashtra, he said.

“The BJP wants to criticize every step of state government even if it means people are losing their lives,” he asserted, and said if the BJP believes there should be another lockdown in Maharashtra, “it is the bad luck of the state”.

Mr Raut also said those who could not give “Bharat Ratna” to Hindutva ideologue VD Savarkar are considering renaming Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in Delhi.

“It’s laughable … create your own legacy instead of renaming institutions in which you have no role to play.” This country has not been built in the past six years, ”said Mr. Raut.
