The Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamna has launched a no-holds-barred attack on Sachin Tendulkar, a day after he celebrated 20 glorious years in international cricket.
The newspaper has taken on Sachin for his recent comments for saying that he was proud to be a Marathi but was an Indian first.
On its editorial page, Saamna has asked Sachin Tendulkar to concentrate on his game of cricket.
The editorial said, "There was no reason for Sachin to make this comment. Sachin has got 'run out' on the 'pitch of Marathi mindspace'. Sachin is the badshah of cricket and he should stick to cricket. He should mind his game and not comment on these things."
RJD supremo Lalu Prasad also spoke on the issue. Sachin shaan hai desh ka (Sachin is the pride of the nation). The Shiv Sena chief should not have criticised Sachin as he has brought glory to the country through his performance on the cricket field, he said.
Sachin had said on Friday that Mumbai is for all Indians.
"Mumbai belongs to India. That is how I look at it. And I am a Maharashtrian and I am extremely proud of that but I am an Indian first," Sachin had said.
Meanwhile, the legendary cricketer is busy with the first cricket Test match against Sri Lanka in Ahmedabad, where the Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and opted to bat.
Note : - This shows that such parties can go down to any level when it comes to their political career , they can target even legends like Sachin Tendulkar who is a world known respectable person.Since MNS has the same strategy of singing the same tone for Marathi Manoos so Shiv Sena is threatened by this and so they are following the same path.Its high time friends that we realize this that politicians will make the situation worse in future if we will support them on such basis.More and more attacks will be made on real Indians on this basis of regionalism.
