In an aggressive, straight to the point write up in Shiv Sena’s Saamana, Uddhav Thackeray has sternly criticised Yogi Adityanath’s recent visit to Palghar and stated that he felt like hitting him with his own footwear.
The write up comes days after Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis accused the Shiv Sena of deception and the latter on Friday termed the BJP as ‘mad murderer’ that is ‘stabbing’ everyone.
Angry at the Uttar Pradesh chief minister for wearing his footwear when garlanding the photo of Maratha warrior Chhatrapati Shivaji, Uddhav termed Yogi Adityanath as a ‘hypocrit CM.’
"He garlanded (photo of) Shivaji Maharaj while wearing chappals. I felt like taking the same chappals and hitting his face with it," wrote the Shiv Sena chief. "He is no yogi, he is a bhogi. Had he been a yogi, he would have given up everything and gone and sat in a cave. But he has gone and sat in the CM's chair."
The former alliance partner of Shiv Sena in Maharashtra was termed as ‘mad murderer’ by Uddhav Thackeray.
"Today, the BJP has become a mad murderer that stabs anybody coming in its way," the Sena editorial alleged.
The word fight between the Shiv Sena and the BJP has stooped to new lows but may even degrade further with Uddhav stating that he is ready for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
"The Sena's victory in Nashik and Parbhani is just the beginning and our win in Palghar (Lok Sabha bypoll) will be the trailer. The developments that follow will change the course of politics in Maharashtra."
