Mumbai: Amit Shah, the Union Home Minister, attacked Uddhav Thackeray harshly while speaking to BJP Mumbai office bearers and MLAs. During his two-day visit, Amit Shah, along with Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Devendra Fadnavis, offered prayers at the renowned Lalbaughcha Raja amid Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations.
He paid homage to Lord Ganesha on Monday by visiting the Varsha official residence of the Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
During his speech, Home Minister urged the party workers to expose former Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray in the upcoming BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) elections. Amit Shah claimed that Uddhav Thackeray had ditched the BJP and the Hindutva ideology, implying that his alliance with the NCP and Congress amounted to backstabbing.
Uddhav Thackeray has not only betrayed the BJP but also betrayed the ideology. He also insulted the mandate of the people of Maharashtra, “Amit Shah said in Mumbai.
The reason for Uddhav Thackeray’s party’s being small is Uddhav Thackeray himself and his greed for power, not the BJP. Those who cheat in politics must be punished, “he said.
Amit Shah has set a target of 150 seats in the BMC polls. He said that if someone was slapped, he might be hurt physically, but if someone was slapped in front of his house, the action shakes one’s conscience. He urged his party workers to get out on the streets and start the poll preparations.
BJP Mumbai president Ashish Shelar stated that in the last BMC polls, the BJP had lost 15 to 20 seats by a slender margin of 100 to 150 votes. He said that if the BJP works hard, hopefully, the saffron party can win more seats this time.
