Uddhav compared with Rahul Gandhi, inciting Owaisi


Mumbai, Mar 4 (IANS): A day after his thundering speech in the Maharashtra Assembly, a Bharatiya Janata Party leader compared Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray with Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, while a Congressman claimed it would serve to incite AIMIM leader Asasuddin Owaisi, here on Thursday.

Congress' Sanjay Nirupam slammed Thackeray's statements taking pride in the demolition of the disputed structure at the Babri Mosque in Ayodhya, demanding what aspect of it was part of the Common Minimum Programme of the Maha Vikas Aghadi government.

"When the CM was 'celebrating' the razing of the Babri Mosque, the Congress and Nationalist Congress Party ministers and members present were enjoying his speech Doesn't it (CM's speech) have enough fertilizer to spur the growth of Owaisi's poisonous saplings?" Nirupam asked.

Taking umbrage to Thackeray's statement that the Centre puts nails on roads to stop the farmers' protests, but flees when China comes before them, BJP Mumbai legislator Atul Bhatkalkar slammed the CM for "insulting" the Indian soldiers guarding the borders.

"Uddhavji has become the 'Rahul Gandhi of Maharashtra'. The CM should apologise to the country for his slurs against the soldiers. The people will definitely teach him a lesson for this 'Rahul Gandhi-giri'," warned Bhatkalkar.

In the Assembly on Thursday, senior BJP leader Sudhir Mungantiwar warned that the MVA should not "cry" if President's Rule is imposed in the state for its alleged failures on various fronts.

Soon after Thackeray's speech on Wednesday evening where he took sharp potshots at the BJP and its top leaders, the state Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis retorted by accusing the Chief Minister of resorting to falsehoods on China, the demolition of the disputed structure in Ayodhya, and other issues, which were aimed at misleading the people.

    It is quite sad to see our leaders take pride in religious advantages. No one thinks of ONE INDIA, OUR INDIA. All fake talks about Bharat Mata etc. Everyone is out there to look after their own interest. Can't we avoid talking about religion (it is personal and should not be utilized for personal gains). We must rather introduce some schemes on the national television how to be patriotic, sincere and faithful to our country. Truth must lead us to faith, faith must keep us united. When we have a safe country and patriotic people, we all can practice our religions. Can there be many Gods? God must be one and the names can be different. JAI HIND
