Mumbai: Hitting back at NCP leader Sharad Pawar who blamed BJP's rise for the recent mob violence in Pune which left an IT professional dead, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray Wednesday equated him with 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed and said he has "lost his sense of proportion" after the poll debacle.
"Pawar is speaking like Hafiz Saeed. After the violence following objectionable posts in social media, Pawar said such forces have raised their head after (Narendra) Modi government came to power.
"It is difficult to predict what Pawar will say and when. His sense of proportion has gone for a toss after his party's debacle in Lok Sabha polls," Uddhav said in an editorial in Sena mouthpiece Saamana.
"There was one murder (Pune techie killing) in Maharashtra. What has the Modi government got to do with it?" Uddhav wondered.
"Pawar should know that Modi government was not in power when (Ajmal) Kasab and others attacked Mumbai," he said.
