Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India]: After former Congress leader Ashok Chavan joined the Bharatiya Janata Party, Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray on Tuesday took a jibe at the slogan of BJP "Modi ki guarantee" and said that the Bharatiya Janata Party's main mission is to induct corrupt leaders into the BJP and give them the post of Deputy Chief Ministers and CMs.
Thackeray also said that there is a new "virus" spreading in the country in the form of "dictatorship".
"We saw corona in our government but today there is a new virus came in the country it's called dictatorship under the Modi government. So, I request you (People's) to wash your hands and finish this dictatorship virus from the country. What is Modi's guarantee? I will tell you, it is to take corrupt leaders into BJP and give them Rajya Sabha seats, make them Deputy CMs and CM and free them from ED and CBI cases," he said.
"I want to ask Modi Ji, your BJP leaders are not capable of completing your dream so you are breaking the parties. They (BJP) stole my party Shiv Sena, then broke NCP Sharad Pawar and now Ashok Chavan from Congress and Nitish Kumar," he said while referring to the splitting of the two major parties of Maharashtra.
