Amit Shah threaten Uddhav Thackeray: Union Home Minister and BJP chief strategist Amit Shah said at a meeting of party leaders in Mumbai today that Shiv Sena’s Uddhav Thackeray has betrayed the BJP and he “should be taught a lesson”. “We can tolerate anything in politics but not betrayal,” Mr Shah told the meeting.
Sources said Mr Shah had accused the former Maharashtra chief minister of being responsible for the split in his party and the events that followed. His “greed”, Mr Shah said, was the reason why a section of his party had turned against him, with Eknath Shinde brushing off the hand of any BJP in the rebellion and the subsequent Maha Vikas Aghadi government led by Mr. Thackeray was the reason for the fall.
Uddhav Thackeray, Mr Shah said, not only betrayed the BJP, but also “betrayed the ideology and also insulted the mandate of the people of Maharashtra”.

Sources quoted him as saying that his party has shrunk today because of “greed for power”, not the BJP. “Today I want to say again that we had never promised Uddhav Thackeray the chief minister’s post. We are openly doing politics, not in closed rooms,” Shah insisted.
Those who cheat in politics should be punished, Mr Shah had declared. He said this can be achieved through “Mission 150” for the upcoming civic polls in Mumbai.
Brihanmumbai Corporation is the richest civic body in the country which BJP has been trying to control for a long time.
“Under Narendra Modi’s guidance, the BJP and the real Shiv Sena alliance should aim to win 150 seats in the BMC elections. The public is with the BJP led by Modi ji. Not with Uddhav Thackeray’s party which betrays the ideology,” he said. was.
Shiv Sena and BJP had an uneasy relationship since the break-up of the alliance over seat-sharing for the assembly elections in 2014, but they came together after the decision to bifurcate the state.
After the 2019 assembly elections, the Shiv Sena again fell out with the BJP and formed an alliance with Sharad Pawar’s Nationalist Congress Party and the Congress to form the Maha Vikas Aghadi government.
At the time, Mr Thackeray had accused the BJP of betrayal and alleged that they were expanding in Maharashtra at the expense of the Shiv Sena.
