Why you left Hindutva: Devendra Fadnavis attacks Shiv Sena

Why you left Hindutva: Devendra Fadnavis attacks Shiv Sena
SHARES

A day after Sharjeel Usmani’s provocative speech at Elgar Parishad conclave, leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis in a letter to the Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has demanded strict action against him. He had added that Sharjeel’s statements were derogatory to Hindu religion, serious and objectionable, and insulting to community members.

Shiv Sena, in 2019, had formed a three alliance party government under Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) in Maharashtra with -- Congress and NCP. Since then, the BJP has been accusing the Shiv Sena of constantly betraying Hindutva.

On being asked about it, Shiv Sena head and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray stated that BJP does not have the monopoly of Hindutva on it. Looking at the current situation in the country, it seems that people want alternatives now.

Replying to this, former CM Fadnavis said, “Hindutva cannot be anyone's monopoly. Hindutva is a legacy that has to be lived. Similarly, Hindutva is not our monopoly either, but how can Sena not follow the Balasaheb Thackeray’s policy and leave Hindutva?

Commenting on Shiv Sena's decision to launch a state-wide protest against the rising price of petrol and diesel, Fadnavis said that the Shiv Sena should not pretend to stage a march. At a time when BJP was in governance in Maharashtra, petrol-diesel prices had gone up. However, the government had reduced the state tax on petrol and diesel and reduced the fuel prices.  Moreover, Devendra Fadnavis also suggested that the present government should also reduce petrol and diesel taxes and bring prices under control.

Last year, BJP held a state-wide agitation against the inflated electricity bills. The agitation was by the BJP against MSEDCL and the state government demanding a roll back of the bills.
