Uddhav Thackeray Claims ‘BJP Cheated My Father On Hindutva Pretext’

Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday said the BJP often betrayed Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray on the pretext of an alliance to promote Hindutva and said he was not ” gullible ” like his father.

“Tase Balasaheb Bhole Hote, Pun Me Nahi (In some ways, Balasaheb had this streak of innocence. But I am not like that). I will not allow BJP to succeed in its conspiracy. I keep my eyes and ears open to his antics and strategies. I’m not that naive. I am well aware of the agenda of the BJP.” Also Read: Free entertainment: Uddhav In Apparent Reference To Raj’s Speeches

Thackeray also hit out at BJP leaders for politicizing Hindutva and said, “Hindus in Maharashtra are not gullible enough to get caught up in the Hindutva policies being run by these people. The BJP is behaving like the people of the state.” Help them revive Maharashtra.

“Shiv Sena fought and won its first election in the name of Hindutva in 1987 alone from Vile Parle. In those elections the BJP fielded candidates against the Shiv Sena,” he said.

“The Shiv Sena contested and won the first by-election in the country on the basis of Hindutva, which was the Vile Parle Assembly bypoll. It is noteworthy that while the Shiv Sena was contesting the election on the basis of Hindutva, the BJP had fielded a candidate by opposing Shiv Sena, he added.

But after the Shiv Sena won the election, the BJP leader came to Balasaheb Thackeray to form an alliance on the basis of Hindutva,” he said.
