Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Udhav Thackeray should introspect whether Bal Thackeray’s ideology is being followed by Shiv Sena before lecturing the Bharatiya Janata Party on Hindutva, said BJP leader Ram Kadam, on Monday.
“Before lecturing on Hindutva, Uddhav Thackeray should introspect whether Shiv Sena is following late Bal Thackeray’s ideology, who had said that in politics and life his party will never join hands with Congress, and if such circumstances arise, he should prefer locking the party office,” Kadam said while reacting to Uddhav Thackeray’s statement that BJP has used Hindutva for power.
“We are the ones who supported them (BJP). We had an alliance for 25 years. BJP used Hindutva for power. We left BJP but will not leave Hindutva. BJP is not Hindutva. Tactics were used against us when we challenged them,” CM Uddhav Thackeray had said in his statement.
