Was Advani hinting at someone, asks Sena
Seizing on LK Advani's widely-debated comment that an <g data-gr-id="20">emergency-like</g> situation cannot be ruled out again, the Shiv Sena on Monday asked the BJP patriarch to speak his mind if he was pointing at some particular leader when he aired his apprehension.
"When Advani laid down his fear of an Emergency again, he is definitely pointing at somebody. Now the question is who is this person that Advani is hinting at? How can his fears be mitigated?" Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana' said in an editorial.
Praising Advani as the "tallest leader" of the country who has seen all seasons and gone through ups and downs, the Sena said, "Even if he is not in the mainstream politics now, BJP leaders and media know that he cannot be ignored and when he said that an <g data-gr-id="25">emergency-like</g> situation cannot be ruled out again, debates have once again focused on him."
