Shiv Sena’s Alliance With BJP For Hindutva, Not Power: Uddhav Thackeray


Nashik: Shiv Sena’s alliance with BJP has been forged on the issue of “Hindutva” and not for sharing power, party president Uddhav Thackeray today said.

“Shiv Sena has made alliance with them (BJP) on the Hindutva issue and not for power,” he said in Nashik.

Mr Thackeray was speaking at a gathering of office-bearers, people’s representatives and workers of the Sena from Nashik division.

Shiv Sena is part of the BJP-led ruling alliances at the Centre and in Maharashtra.

“You (BJP) may be taking advice from NCP chief Sharad Pawar but we don’t take advice from him,” Mr Thackeray said, claiming that some BJP and NCP leaders share close ties.

Speaking on current drought in large parts of Maharashtra, the Shiv Sena leader said nobody should play “politics” on the issue.
