The Shiv Sena alleged the government was planning to block Internet in Nashik. Does the government equate "Nashik with unpeaceful Kashmir and protesting farmers with the anti-nationals who throw stones at the Army", the Shiv Sena said.
"The fire of farmers anguish cannot be doused merely by making promises. Monday's Maharashtra bandh was a challenge to the government. If appropriate lessons are not learnt by the government, the lava of farmers' pain will create havoc for it," the Shiv Sena said in its editorial.
"Will farmers be understood at least now?" the Shiv Sena said, adding the government will start feeling the might of farmers' unity and will have to agree to a farm loan waiver and a good price for their agricultural produce.
