No party becomes completely extinct: Shiv Sena on BJP's jibes at NCP
By Money Control 05-Sep-2019
Union Home Minister Amit Shah had slammed Pawar at a recent rally. With the exit of many NCP leaders, the BJP had also said that soon it will become a one-man party.
NCP supremo Sharad Pawar's contribution to the development of Maharashtra cannot be overlooked, the Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana' said in its editorial on September 5.
"Pawar's contribution has been acknowledged by (prime minister) Narendra Modi himself during a visit to (Pawar's hometown) Baramati. Modi also called Pawar his 'guru'," it said.

Yet, on September 1, Amit Shah targeted Pawar over dynasty politics and corruption at a rally in Solapur, it pointed out.
The newspaper referred to Pawar's grandson Rohit Pawar's swipe at the BJP that praising Pawar on one hand and then asking what had he done for Maharashtra was "politics of double standard".
Rohit was the first from the Pawar family to counter the BJP's barbs, it added.
The attacks on Sharad Pawar were continuing even five years after the NCP lost power, the Saamana editorial noted.
