Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray has criticised the BJP for its supposed indecisiveness on its choice of the prime ministerial candidate for the NDA alliance in the 2014 elections. He has also not spared those who are rooting for Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, criticising them for not talking of his Hindutva agenda openly.

“The one who speaks about Hindutva openly can rule the nation …,” said the Saamna editorial, which is essentially Thackeray’s own view. “It can be Modi or anyone else.”

Thackeray said he did not have prime ministerial ambitions.
