“Congress is doing good in the state. But every once in a while the old cot (Congress) makes noises…. It has now been decided that the two ministers will meet the Chief Minister and raise their points. Chief Minister will meet them and make a decision. But what does Congress want to say? Why is the old cot (Congress) making a noise?” the editorial said (roughly translated from Hindi).

Notably, the Saamna article came in response to an interview published in an English daily in which  Congress leader Ashok Chavan had been quoted blaming bureaucrats for creating a rift among MVA and added that Congress will soon take up the matter with Sena chief and Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.
