New Delhi:

Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday hit out at government for implementation of Goods and Services Tax and its alliance with Bhartiya Janata Party.

Thackeray questioned about the uniformity in GST by saying that even Pakistan has cheaper petrol than India.

"Government says GST brings uniform taxation. Where is the uniformity? Even Pakistan has cheaper petrol than us," said Thackeray.

Thackeray reminded BJP that they entered into alliance for the sole purpose of unity of Hindu votes and if BJP thinks that Shiv Sena is no use to them then they will see how to deal with it.

Uddhav said that an atmosphere was created that those who favor demonetisation are "deshbhakt" and those who oppose it are "deshdrohi."

"You are okay with Nitish who abuses you, with Mehbooba Mufti who threatens you but why not us who say 'garv se kaho hum Hindu hain'?" said Thackeray.

"You enjoy power in Kashmir with Mehbooba Mufti. What happened to your 'ek vidhaan ek nishaan'? Would you dare abolish 370?" said Thackeray.

Shiv Sena has been critical of government decisions for a long time now. They opposed demonetiation, GST, government’s diplomacy against China and Pakistan and many more.
