‘Uddhav Thackeray backstabbed, but got befitting reply’
Mumbai: Bharatiya Janata Party president JP Nadda on Monday alleged that Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray “backstabbed” the BJP and compromised with his ideology for power, but got a befitting reply as a new government is now in place in Maharashtra. Nadda was addressing a ‘Vijay Sankalp’ rally in Maharashtra’s Chandrapur district. The rally was part of the BJP’s plan to win 18 “difficult” seats from Maharashtra in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Nadda said during the polls it was clearly mentioned that “Delhi mein Narendra...Maharashtra mein Devendra” and the Shiv Sena gave consent to it at that time, but, when the election results came out, they (Sena and Thackeray) “backstabbed us” for becoming the CM. He also targeted Thackeray over the incident of alleged lynching of three persons in Palghar district in April 2020. “Uddhav, the son of Hindu Samrat (Sena founder Bal Thackeray), took a step back” by not handing over the probe into the case to the CBI under pressure from the Congress and NCP, he said.
