"I am in full agreement with the Shiv Sena's criticism of Prime Minister Narendra Modi," Kumar said when asked to comment on Shiv Sena's criticism published in its mouthpiece 'Saamana'.

Shiv Sena on Wednesday criticised Modi's announcement of a credit line of USD 1 billion to Mongolia and asked why he can't show the same eagerness to help the distressed farmers of Maharashtra reeling under debt.

"BJP has established its monopoly over the NDA ignoring views of allies on any subject," Kumar said and cited differences in opinion among NDA constituents over the Land Acquisition Bill.

To a question on the PM's statements in China and South Korea that Indians were earlier ashamed of being born in the country until he took office, the Chief Minister said, "I think every Indian feels pride being born in India."
