Maha: Shiv Sena has gone pseudo-secular, says Fadnavis citing Urdu calendar


The ruling Shiv Sena has become “pseudo-secular” because a Shiv Sena worker printed a calendar in Urdu in which founder Bal Thackeray is referred to as “janab”, Maharashtra BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis said on Sunday.

He was speaking to reporters as he campaigned for the North Kolhapur Assembly by-election scheduled for April 12.

”The Shiv Sena has become pseudo-secular. However, we are not against any religion or their beliefs,” the former chief minister said.

Fadnavis condemned the protest by MSRTC staffers outside the home of NCP leader Sharad Pawar on April 8, but also attacked some party leaders for blaming the BJP for the incident.

”Every party has brainless people who make one or the other statement. The BJP will attack from the front, not this way, if necessary. Since the media knew about the attack and not the police, some ruling parties are trying to distract by blaming the BJP,’ Fadnavis said.

He said the BJP would win the indirect vote from Kolhapur North as the party relied on its chemistry with the people rather than the arithmetic of the polls.

He also accused the MVA of “terrorizing” people in northern Maharashtra and questioned whether that region had become like West Bengal, a state that has recently seen numerous incidents of political violence, including several people burned to death in Birbhum. the.

The former CM hailed wrestler and Kolhapur resident Prithviraj Patil for winning the ‘Maharashtra Kesari’ tournament and said his party will provide Rs 5 lakh for the latter’s training.
