Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam on Thursday slammed Shiv Sena workers after a video surfaced showing a party leader asking the owner of ‘Karachi Sweets’ in Mumbai’s Bandra West area to change the name of his shop.
Nirupam took to Twitter and wrote Nirupam said that Chinese restaurants in India have nothing to do with China and similarly Bandra's Karachi Sweets has nothing to do with Karachi.
He further in his tweet wrote, "When will the brainless karyakartas of Shiv Sena understand this truth?" he asked. "The threat of asking to change the name of the shop is wrong. The Chief Minister should not be a spectator here. He should protect the store," Nirupam added.
Earlier Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut had reacted to the viral video and said,"Karachi bakery & Karachi sweets have been in Mumbai since last 60 years. They have nothing to do with Pakistan. It makes no sense to ask for changing their names now. Demand for changing their name is not Shiv Sena's official stance, tweets "
भारत के चाइनीज़ होटलों का चीन से कोई लेना-देना नहीं है,वैसे ही बांद्रा के #कराँची_स्वीट्स का पाकिस्तान से कोई नाता नहीं।— Sanjay Nirupam (@sanjaynirupam) November 19, 2020
यह सत्य #शिवसेना के बेवक़ूफ़ कार्यकर्ता कब समझेंगे ?
70 साल पुरानी दुकान का नाम बदलने की जो धमकी दी गई है,वो गलत है।मुख्यमंत्री तमाशा न देखें, उसकी रक्षा करें।
