Watch out for Pulwama-like attack ahead of Lok Sabha polls: MNS chief Raj Thackeray

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray on Saturday lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah saying, “who is Modi and Shah to teach us about patriotism?”

While speaking at MNS’ 13th anniversary at Rangsharda Hall in Bandra, Raj Thackeray claimed that he was afraid because there could be another attack similar to Pulwama ahead of the upcoming general elections. 

I had earlier predicted that PM Modi and his party will create a war like the situation before 2019 polls. Mark my words, there will be another Pulwama-like attack in the next two months to divert the attention to people from all issues to patriotism,” MNS chief Raj Thackeray asserted.

While attacking Modi and National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval, Thackrey said that Pulwama attack was not an intelligence failure. “CRPF’s request for sending the jawans via air was not accepted. What was Ajit Doval doing? Why shouldn’t we ask questions regarding the deaths of our jawans?” asked Thackeray. 

Thackeray further questioned the business alliance of Ajit Doval’s son with a Pakistani national. 

Speaking about the air strike carried out by Indian Air Force (IAF) on Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror camps across Line of Control (LoC), the MNS chief said that the BJP is spreading lies regarding the same. 

They say that 200-300 people were killed in the air strike. However, if people would have died in Pakistan, they won’t have agreed to free IAF Pilot Abhinandan. BJP spreads false informed because elections are close.” 

While addressing the gathering, Thackeray raised questions regarding the Rafale deal and asked, “Why was Anil Ambani given the contract for the same?” Thackeray further added that their issue is not Rafale deal but the corruption. “This used to happen in reel life, but we are witnessing the same in real life,” Raj Thackeray on government's claim that the Rafale documents were stolen.
