He can also make Dawood a saint overnight… Uddhav Thackeray’s attack on BJP
Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray attacked the BJP during his address at a mega rally in Mumbai on Saturday evening, saying that if gangster Dawood Ibrahim also joins the BJP, he will be made a saint overnight. In fact, earlier this week, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) conducted raids at 20 locations in Mumbai on associates of fugitive gangster Dawood Ibrahim. Uddhav Thackeray’s attack on BJP was not limited to Dawood Ibrahim’s remarks during his speech at a mega rally on Saturday evening. He also attacked the party regarding inflation in the country.
He said, “Modi ji has given ration but should we eat raw? How to cook when cylinder prices are skyrocketing? No one is talking about inflation. Watch what is happening in Sri Lanka and take a lesson from there.” He said, “Atal Bihari Vajpayee once went to Parliament in a bullock cart because the fuel rate had increased by seven paise. Now look at fuel rates. The BJP is not what it was during Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s time.”
Hindutva is now the mace
Emphasizing that Shiv Sena’s Hindutva is better than BJP’s, he said, “Some fake Hindutvawadis are misleading our country. Balasaheb Thackeray taught us that we don’t need Hindus who ring bells in temples. We need Hindus who can kill terrorists. Tell us, what have you done for Hindutva? You haven’t even demolished Babri. This was done by our Shiv Sainiks… We have saffron blood in our veins. Don’t try to challenge us.” He said that today Hindutva has become a mace. On the murder of Kashmiri Pandit Rahul Bhat in Jammu and Kashmir, he said, will you go there now and read Hanuman Chalisa.
