Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece, Saamna, in its editoral has hit out at the Centre, saying the BJP-led ruling government is ‘addicted to apologising’. Saamna’s column was referring to Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s statement in the parliament over Nagaland civilian killings.
The Home Minister had stated that the firing incident in Mon district, which left 14 civilians dead and many injured, was a case of ‘mistaken identity’. Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece also mentions Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘apology’ to the nation after announcing the repeal of three farm laws.

Taking a jibe at the Centre, the Shiv Sena mouthpiece states: “Commit crimes, kill people, and apologise if the case isn’t settled.”
This statement was also aimed at PM’s ‘apology’ after the repeal of three farm laws and Amit Shah’s remark about ‘mistaken identity’.
Addressing the Lok Sabha on the incident, which left 13 civilians and a jawan dead, Amit Shah, on Tuesday said the vehicle carrying the villagers was “signalled to stop but it tried to flee… . It was later found to be a case of mistaken identity,” he added.
The Shiv Sena mouthpiece criticized the government for labeling the protesters as ‘Khalistan supporters’.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi had to withdraw three agricultural laws seeking forgiveness from the country. Until then, over 800 farmers were killed by the government, but Prime Minister Modi apologized and closed the issue. Home Minister Amit Shah also apologized and tried to cover up the Nagaland issue. The rulers are addicted to apologizing,” said the ‘Saamna’ editorial.
Since the Congress-NCP and Shiv Sena formed a government in Maharashtra, Saamna editorials have constantly opposed the policies of the Narendra Modi government in the centre.
“In Nagaland, innocent people were shot and in other cases, innocent people were interrogated and imprisoned. When will the ‘Court of Inquiry’ of all these cases be held?” asked the Shiv Sena mouthpiece.
It also added that the country was ‘stunned by the killing of 13 civilians and a soldier by security forces in the border state of Nagaland. The repercussions of this case were felt all over Northeast India, but also in both the Houses of Parliament.’
The editorial expressed grief in the killing of civillians in Nagaland. It said that the Nagaland case ‘is not the case with just four lines of regret. 13 innocent civilians and one soldier have been killed unnecessarily. The government is responsible for his murder.”
