The BJP said Uddhav Thackeray never left his domestic even for his celebration but will now go to welcome Rahul Gandhi when the yatra enters Maharashtra on November 6.
As former Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray is probable to sign up for Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra whilst it reaches Maharashtra, the BJP on Wednesday stated Rahul Gandhi has taken the area of Lord Ram in the politics of Uddhav Thackeray. “Uddhav Thackeray by no means left domestic even for the sake of his party, however now he has set out to welcome Rahul Gandhi,” Upadhye stated. The BJP leader said just like the antique Hindi said ‘Muh me Ram, bagal me chhuri,’ for Uddhav Thackeray, it is ‘muh me Ram, bagal me Rahul’. Uddhav by no means took to the streets for any Hindutva march, Advani’s Rath Yatra, the BJP leader said. Also Read leader’s ‘R for Ravan’ jibe at Rahul Gandhi
Uddhav Thackeray’s father Bal Thackeray used to make sure that whoever eminent personalities came to Maharashtra visited his residence, but now Uddhav Thackeray will go to Nanded to welcome Rahul Gandhi, the BJP leader stated.
The Congress has prolonged an invitation to Uddhav Thackeray to join the yatra when it enters Maharashtra on November 6. Maharashtra Congress in-charge HK Patil and senior leaders Balasaheb Thorat, Ashok Chavan met Uddhav Thackeray at his residence and invited him. Either Uddhav Thackeray or his son, former minister Aaditya Thackeray will be present on the yatra.
Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar and his daughter MP Supriya Sule are predicted to welcome the yatra next month.
Amid the continuing Bharat Jodo Yatra, Rajasthan minister Parsadi Lal Meena compared Rahul Gandhi with Lord Ram and stated Rahul Gandhi’s yatra is even longer than Lord Ram’s adventure from Ayodhya to Sri Lanka. As this comparison led to an uproar, Maharashtra Congress leader Nana Patole supported Meena’s remarks and said it is best a twist of fate that both Rahul Gandhi and Lord Ram’s names start with an ‘R’, and there may be no evaluation being drawn. “God is god, and we’re people. Rahul Gandhi is simply running for humanity’s sake. I experience Rahul ji’s padyatra will save the tricolour and humanity,” Patole said.
