‘Uddhav Thackeray faction must quit its Congress alliance’

THANE: The Eknath Shinde faction of Shiv Sena on Saturday, urged the Uddhav Thackeray faction to snap alliance with the Congress and exit the Maha Vikas Aghadi as a mark of protest following Rahul Gandhi’s statement on freedom fighter VD Savarkar. Naresh Mhaske, former Thane mayor and spokesperson of the Shinde faction, was addressing the media where he questioned the Uddhav faction if they were waiting for an opportune time to quit alliance with Congress. He reminded how late Balasaheb Thackeray took to streets after Congres leader Mani Shankar Iyer made some controversial statement against Savarkar several years back. “They (Uddhav faction) just want to gain sympathy. Their real stance about Hindutva is known from their silence on Rahul Gandhi's statement. If Balasaheb was around, he would have broken the alliance at first stance. It is unfortunate to see their young leader (Aditya Thackeray) meeting Rahul Gandhi when he should be protesting his statements. It seems they don't have any supporters left and it’s a pity to see how helpless they have become,” said Mhaske in a press statement.
