Former Maharashtra Chief Minister and Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray on Tuesday said that there is a difference between “our Hindutva and BJP’s Hindutva.”
Thackeray further said that the names of the candidates for Maha Vikas Aghadi will be announced in a day or two.
“Those who left us are spreading rumours that I have left Bala Saheb’s ideology. I have not left Hindutva. There is a difference between our Hindutva and BJP’s Hindutva. Our Hindutva is nationalist. Spreading hatred against other religions is not our Hindutva,” Uddhav Thackeray said while addressing a rally in Maharashtra’s Nanded on Tuesday.
“The names of the candidates of Maha Vikas Aghadi will be announced in a day or two, said Thackeray.
Thackeray’s announcement came at a time when Congress-led Maha Vikas Aghadi is facing trouble finalising its seat-sharing arrangement.
The Congres, the Shiv Sena (UBT) and the NCP (S Pawar) are yet to finalise the seat sharing arrangement. MVA constituent Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi chief Prakash Ambedkar has made his displeasure public alleging that the UBT sena and NCP (S Pawar) are not hearing out the VBA and its demands.
However, Sena UBT leader Sanjay Raut is confident that the INDIA bloc will give a tough fight to the BJP-led NDA.
Maharashtra will vote in five phases for 48 constituencies in the upcoming general elections. Vote counting will take place on June 4.
Lok sabha Elections 2024 would be held in seven phases starting on April 19 and ending on June 1. The results will be declared on June 4.
In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP won 23 out of 25 contested seats, while the undivided Shiv Sena secured 18 out of 23 seats
