When Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray bent down and touched his forehead to the stage on Tuesday it was a familiar sight for Sena workers because this is a trademark of his father and Sena chief Bal Thackeray.
The only difference is that the senior Thackeray did it after winning elections while Uddhav did it before the civic polls.
While addressing a crowd of over 20,000 ward level leaders of the Shiv Sena at the NESCO complex at Goregaon on Tuesday, Uddhav appealed to his workers to stay together and not give in to ‘bribes’ promised by other political parties.
“The difference between the Congress-NCP and us is that they fight for five years but come together during elections, while we work shoulder to shoulder for the whole term and fight during the elections. Make sure we have no infighting during these elections,” Uddhav said.
Uddhav also released a book ‘Karun Dakhavla’ (we have done it) that lists all the works done by the BMC over the past 5 years.
