Uddhav Thackeray on alliance with BJP for Assembly elections
Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Tuesday said despite his party being in Maharashtra government for last five years without much power, he never betrayed or conspired to pull it down.
He said in an alliance, both parties need to exercise caution and if the speed is accelerated unnecessarily, it could lead to an “accident”.
In the second part of his interview to Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana’, Mr. Thackeray also spoke about his party’s objection to tree felling in Aarey Colony in Mumbai, saying they are not against the Metro car shed, but the place where it is proposed.
“Development should not happen by causing hardships to people,” he said, asserting that the Sena will continue to raise its voice on issues pertaining to citizens.
He also expressed confidence that the BJP-Sena alliance will provide a much better administration and governance, if it wins again in the upcoming state polls.
