NAGPUR/Mumbai: In what is seen as a launch of party’s 2024 Lok Sabha campaign, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief JP Nadda set the agenda before party workers and state leaders. He came down heavily on Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray and also asked his party workers to take the social schemes implemented by Narendra Modi government to the voters.

Nadda in his Chandrapur rally, about 840kms from Mumbai, made a scathing attack on Shiv Sena Thackeray claiming that his ‘greed’ for the chief minister’s chair made him join hands with people whom late Balasaheb Thackeray had spent his entire life fighting. “This is what they brought to Maharashtra. Should these kinds of people be forgiven?” he asked.

Calling the MVA alliance of Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and the Congress as unnatural, the BJP chief said it was given an apt answer with the formation of the government led by Eknath Shinde and Devendra Fadnavis. “Uddhav-led Sena shared the stage with us, and agreed with us when we spoke about ‘Narendra (Modi) in Delhi and Devendra (Fadnavis) in Maharashtra’. When results came, they began to eye the chief minister’s chair. They stabbed us in the back. But in politics, power rests only with those who speak the truth. An unnatural does not last long,” he retorted.

Both Aurangabad and Chandrapur are the constituencies where the party does not have its sitting MPs. Chandrapur was traditionally a BJP citadel where the senior party leader Hansraj Ahir, who had won the seat since 2004, lost to the Congress’s Suresh Dhanorkar in 2019 elections because of internal fight within the party. AIMIM’s Imtiyaz Jaleel won the Aurangabad seat.
