The Shiv Sena’s attack on the offices of IBN network in Mumbai and Pune shows that Maharashtra is in the grip of rowdy elements. Unfortunately, the people of the State seem to have adjusted to such violent actions. The government should ensure that freedom of the press remains intact and that no one dares to hold the State to ransom.

The attack on the media shows the Shiv Sena’s frustration after losing the elections in Maharashtra. What is worrying is the lack of government action against the Sena activists.
