The same thing for which Maharashtra Police has arrested Union Minister Narayan Rane, the state Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has openly said in a rally for UP CM Yogi Adityanath. During the Jan Ashirwad Yatra in Raigad district on Monday, Narayan Rane had said that it is shameful that the Chief Minister (Uddhav) does not know how many years have passed since independence. He didn’t stop here. He further said, “During the speech, he was seen looking back and asking about this. Had I been there, I would have given him a hard slap.
After the arrest of Rane, an old and objectionable statement of Uddhav Thackeray has started being discussed, which he gave against Yogi Adityanath. Thackeray had talked about killing Yogi with slippers. Let us tell you that Thackeray made this statement during the election campaign in Palghar, Maharashtra in the month of May 2018. During this, the relationship between BJP and Shiv Sena had soured.
Uddhav Thackeray said that while garlanding the statue of Shivaji, Yogi Adityanath was wearing a khadaun, he insulted Shivaji by doing so. He further said, ‘This yogi is like a gas balloon, which only keeps flying in the air. Came and went straight to Maharaj wearing slippers. Looks like I should hit him with the same sandal.
Yogi Adityanath had also reacted to that statement of Thackeray. He had said, ‘I have more manners than him and I know how to pay tribute. I don’t need to learn anything from him.”
On which statement Rane created a ruckus?
Union Minister Rane, during the Jan Ashirwad Yatra in Raigad district on Monday, reportedly said, “It is shameful that the Chief Minister does not know how many years have passed since independence. During the speech, he was seen looking back and asking about this. Had I been there, I would have given him a hard slap. Rane claimed that while addressing the public on August 15, Thackeray had forgotten how many years of independence have been completed. He said that in the middle of the speech he was asking his colleagues how many years have passed since Independence Day.
