Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, BJP state president Chandrashekhar Bawankule as well as party MPs and MLAs were also present in this meeting. According to sources, Home Minister Amit Shah said in the meeting that the reason behind Uddhav Thackeray’s party being small is Uddhav Thackeray himself and his greed for power, not BJP. Amit Shah said that those who cheat in politics should be punished. Today I want to say again that we had never promised Uddhav Thackeray the chief minister’s post. We are people who do politics by thumping our chests and not in closed rooms. Uddhav Thackeray was cooking khyali pulao. Let us inform that in June this year, Eknath Shinde had rebelled against Shiv Sena. After which the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi government fell. After this, the new government was formed by the Eknath Shinde faction and the BJP. After losing power, former Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray had fiercely attacked the BJP. He had claimed that the BJP had promised him the post of CM for two-and-a-half years, but betrayed the Shiv Sena after the elections.
– Home Minister’s prediction about Mumbai Municipal Elections
Union Home Minister Amit Shah has also predicted the victory of BJP in the Mumbai Municipal Elections. He said that the target of the BJP and the original Shiv Sena alliance should be to win 150 seats in the municipal elections under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The public is with the BJP led by PM Modi, not with the Uddhav party that betrays the ideology. Uddhav Thackeray had not only betrayed the BJP but also betrayed the ideology and also insulted the mandate of the people of Maharashtra. Amit Shah made it clear in the meeting that in the BMC elections, BJP and allies have to wipe out Shiv Sena at any cost.
