Pandharpur, Dec 24: Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray on Monday targeted the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance government for delaying the construction of the Lord Ram temple in Ayodhya and said Hindus are innocent but not fools.
Addressing a gathering in Maharashtra’s, Pandharpur, he attacked the Centre over a host of issues including Rafale Deal, Farmers and others.
“It’s been 30 years and still you say that matter is in court. Hindus are innocent but not fools. Let there be a discussion in Parliament on the Ram temple issue, who are in your favour on this issue among NDA will be clear”, he said while addressing a gathering in Maharashtra’s, Pandharpur.
“I went to Ayodhya (November) and have come to the holy land of Pandharpur. I want to wake up the sleeping Kumbhakarna — you exploited Ram temple to win elections and now you are in a slumber. We will not rest till the Ram temple is constructed”.
Thackeray hit out at the Narendra Modi government over Rafale Deal saying “a company which had no experience was given a contract. Soldiers of our country need a pay hike which you don’t give, but you do scams in the purchase of arms and ammunition”.
Taking a jibe over false promises, the Shiv Sena Supremo stated “in 2022, you will tell farmers that the promise to double their income was a jumla”.
