Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday questioned the BJP’s Modi wave and rubbished speculations of his party allying with the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) ahead of the assembly polls.
Speaking from his Mumbai residence, the Sena chief took a jibe at the BJP, which announced that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would be holding 15-20 rallies across Maharashtra over the next 15 days.
“I have nothing personal against PM Narendra Modi. Just that if they were so sure of a win and had so much confidence, then why have they been announcing of so many plans of Modi rallies before the elections?” said Uddhav.
A decision on Union heavy industries minister and Sena leader Anant Geete’s resignation from the Modi cabinet would be taken after the PM was back from the US, he added.
Uddhav denied that he was getting together with his cousin Raj Thackeray, saying he called the MNS leader to enquire about his health.
“Why is the health of other people deteriorating with this call?” he added.
