Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Mumbai chief Ashish Shelar on Thursday launched a sequence of assaults on Maharashtra’s former Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray for his new Hindutva coverage and questioned his silence on the grotesque homicide of Shraddha Walkar.
“Thackeray has divided Hindus by bringing the concept of a new Hindu. Why did he say that he supports Marathi Muslims? What problems does he have with Jain, Gujarati and North Indian? Is it just to get Muslim votes?.” Ashish Shelar questioned Uddhav Thackeray throughout a public rally in Mumbai forward of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) polls.
BJP chief was addressing sixteenth Jagar (Wake Up) rally close to the Saamna (Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece) workplace at Mumbai’s Prabha Devi.
Ashish Shelar additionally racked up Uddhav Thackeray’s silence on the Shraddha Murder case. “A Mumbai girl was murdered by Aftab and chopped into pieces but Uddhav said nothing about it,” Mr Shelar stated, including that “on December 23, 2020, during MVA government in Maharashtra Shraddha walkar wrote a letter to Mumbai Police that Aftab is threatening to kill her, but this letter was not taken seriously by the police and the Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil and the Chief Minister didn’t even intervene in this serious issue.”
“I want to question him why the police settled this case on the table itself. Was the police pressurised or is it because she was Walkar and he was Aftab?” he added.
Mr Shelar additionally mocked Aditya Thackeray’s latest Bihar go to. “Didn’t Aditya meet Tejashwi Yadav to know how Lalu ate all the ‘chara’ (folder scam)?” Shelar stated. “They (Tejashwi Yadav and Aditya Thackeray both) are well known for eating (indulging in corruption),” he added.
“Uddhav ji didn’t even welcome the court order on the Gyanvapi issue and ‘Saamna’ in his earlier editorial, published on October 22 maintained that the Uddhav faction Shiv Sena is with Marathi Muslims. So now to have votes in the BMC election they are with Muslims,” Ashish Shelar stated additional.
BJP has been organising the Jagar (Wake Up) rally in Mumbai forward of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) election. This is the second section of the marketing campaign and some months again Poll Khol yatra in Mumbai was organised by the BJP to spotlight corruption in BMC and to show Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena.
