Jalgaon: Shiv Sena (UBT) President Uddhav Thackeray has said that BJP has changed the country’s name to Bharat… We shall not indulge in such name-change games… We will change the ruling party and the Modi in the next elections
Mounting a blistering attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party government, Shiv Sena (UBT) President Uddhav Thackeray said that the ruling coalition at the Centre is ‘shaken’ by the success of the recent National Opposition parties’ conclave in Mumbai last fortnight.
“They are so rattled by the INDIA bloc that they have changed the country’s name to Bharat… … The BJP will not return to power in the 2024 elections,” roared Thackeray, amid a huge round of applause.
“There is talk now that there could be a repeat of the Godhra incident (February 27, 2002) around the inauguration of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya…” warned Thackeray.
Referring to the ongoing Manipur crises, the Shiv Sena (UBT) supremo lamented how women were publicly brutalised and shamed, “but the government at the Centre has said or done nothing”.
“Those who choose to keep quiet on such tragic and serious issues have no right to utter the name of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj or Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and such icons,” said Thackeray sharply.
Thackeray called upon the people to throw out the government of traitors, corrupt elements and those who have been making false promises in the next elections and ensure they are not taken for a ride again.
Earlier, Thackeray inaugurated a statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel in two major junctions of Jalgaon city.
