Guwahati/ 6th April’2018 (Prag News Desk):
The Shiv Sena has called the move to forgo 400 lawmakers salary as a mere “drama” on the part of the ruling NDA party and that they (Shiv Sena) are “not in the same page” with the BJP on the issue. The House did not go in tandem due to the ongoing furor over Union Minister Ananth Kumar’s request to the 400 lawmakers in the house to give up their salary until 23rd of April. Shiv Sena blamed the ruling party for the disruptions caused in the house.
Arvind Sawant, a lawmaker from South West Mumbai complained that his party was not consulted before on this issue of giving up of the salary and allowances for the month of April.
The Shiv Sena also commented that, the ruling NDA remembers them only during the Presidential and Vice-presidential polls and in other matters, they are mostly left aloof without considering a bit to consult them.
