Shinde articulated UPA's attitude: Shiv Sena

September 16, 2012 17:00 IST

Commenting on Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde's statement that coal block allocation scam would be soon forgotten, Shiv Sena on Sunday said he articulated 'attitude' of the United Progressive Alliance government.

"Shinde has spoken out the attitude of the UPA government," Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray said.

At a function in Pune on Saturday, Shinde had said, in a lighter vein, that 'earlier the Bofors was a talking point. People forgot about it. Now it is coal. This too will be forgotten'.

Reacting to Shinde's remarks, Sena Member of Parliament Sanjay Raut said, "One can be oblivious if hands are blackened, but how can one be oblivious if his face is blackened ?" Shinde's statement was disgraceful, Raut added.
