Sanjay Raut, a Sena MP, was reportedly referring to the Uddhav Thackeray-led party breaking ties with the BJP and forming a government with the NCP and Congress after the 2019 elections.
NCP chief Sharad Pawar had said 25 years ago that the BJP was a divisive party, but Shiv Sena only realised this reality two years ago, Sena MP Sanjay Raut said on Saturday, referring to the Uddhav Thackeray-led party breaking ties with the BJP and forming a government with the NCP and Congress after the 2019 Maharashtra Assembly elections.
Raut was speaking at an event following the publication of Nemkechi Bolane, a collection of Pawar’s Marathi speeches delivered at various political rallies.
Sharad Pawar said 25 years ago that the BJP did not want unity in the country. Its methods are contentious. This was something we realised two years ago. He also claimed that the BJP’s policies were regressive and would lead to the country’s reunification. However, it took us a long time to realise it, according to the Shiv Sena MP.
The name of the book is so good that we all should gift it to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Raut said, referring to the title, which can be roughly translated as speaking with brevity. He’ll need to know a few things.
The Central Hall of Parliament, according to Raut, was once known for meetings between leaders from various parties and senior journalists and leaders, who would discuss a variety of issues.
“However, in recent years, those who attempt to raise questions have been met with opposition and silence, he claimed.
The denial of basic rights to ask questions, according to Raut, paves the way for majoritarianism.
“Pawar had stated this a few years ago, and now it has become a reality, according to the Rajya Sabha MP.
