There is a “fake Hindutva party” that is confusing the country, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray said on Saturday in a counterattack against the BJP questioning the party’s Hindutva credentials.
“There is a fake Hindutva party that is confusing the country. Devendra Fadnavis (former chief minister of Maharashtra) is talking about their Hindutva. We have driven you out. They think they are Hindutva protectors. What about the people here? Who are they?” Said Uddhav Thackeray at the rally mega in the Bandra-Kurla Complex.
While several attempts have been made to portray that Sena has moved away from Bal Thackeray’s ambitions, the party has consistently responded by saying it is firmly following in the footsteps of its founder Bal Thackeray.
“Your mother’s body Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) was never part of the freedom struggle. The Samyukta Maharashtra movement was created by my grandfather and helped by my father and his brother Shrikant. But you know who dropped out. Bharatiya Jan Sangh,” said Chief Minister .
RSS is the source of BJP ideology.
“Rahul Bhat (Pandit Kashmir) was killed in a government office. Extremists came and killed him. Will you read Hanuman Chalisa is there? “asked the Chief Minister.
The Chief Minister also received criticism from the BJP for going with the party, Congress, which is against its ideology.
“They said we went with Congress. We went openly. How about in the morning you swore? Yes, we went with the NCP. If they were with you, you would sing the praises of people like Nawab Malik,” the Chief Minister said.
Nawab Malik, an NCP leader and minister in the Maharashtra government, was arrested on February 23 by the Enforcement Directorate in a money laundering investigation linked to the wanted gangster activities of Dawood Ibrahim and his aides.
The “fake Hindutva BJP” formed an alliance with Mufti Mehbooba, the Chief Minister’s counterattack.
Earlier while speaking at the rally, Chief Minister Aaditya Thackeray’s son underlined that “Shiv Sena has Ram in his heart”. He will also visit Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh on June 15.
“I’m talking to you as a 31 -year -old. There’s unemployment and inflation, you decide which government you want. There’s an attempt to create divisions in society. Do you want a government that burns houses or that keeps fires lit in your homes. We are. have Ram in our hearts and we want you to have the work in your hands, ”said Aaditya Thackeray.
