BJP cheated my father on Hindutva pretext: Uddhav
   Date :03-May-2022

MAHARASHTRA Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday said that the BJP had often cheated Shiv Sena founder Balasaheb Thackeray in the past on the pretext of an alliance for propagating Hindutva and added that he is not so “gullible” as 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 the BJP to succeed in its plot. I keep my eyes and ears open on their actions and strategies. I am well versed with BJP’s agenda,” Thackeray said.
He lashed out at BJP leaders for politicising Hindutva and said, “Hindus in Maharashtra are not gullible enough to get trapped by the Hindutva policies run by these people. It is behaving in such a way as if people of the State are seeking help to revive Maharashtra.”
The CM reminded the BJP that the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance was in place in the name of Hindutva only. “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.
