Srinagar, April 20 : Uddhav Thackeray on Friday said that Shiv Sena formed alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) because his party wanted a prime minister who can dare to attack Pakistan. Shiv Sena formed an alliance with the saffron party again ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections. “We wanted a prime minister who could attack Pakistan by entering its home. That is why we formed this alliance. I have formed alliance with the BJP (also) for the welfare of Marathwada and Maharashtra,” he added. Thackeray was addressing a campaign rally here for Sena candidate Chandrakant Khaire.
“The Congress does not want abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution which gives a special status to Jammu and Kashmir, Thackeray said, and added that his party wants that every law applicable to rest of India should also apply in Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.
Thackeray also came down heavily on former JNU Students Union president Kanhaiya Kumar who is contesting on a CPI ticket from Begusarai in Bihar.”People like Kanhaiya Kumar preparing to enter Lok Sabha is very sad, he is a separatist,” he said.
