Mumbai: On Saturday, CM Uddhav Thackeray launched a scathing attack on the BJP and the leader of the opposition in the assembly Devendra Fadnavis at his Mumbai Rally. Yes, and to respond to those attacks, Fadnavis now held a 'North' meeting at the Nesco Centre in Goregaon, Mumbai. Yes, and this meeting was held as a dialogue of the BJP with Hindi-speaking and North Indians. However, it was publicised as a reply to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray's rally. It happened as it was preached.
In fact, during this time, Devendra Fadnavis hit back strongly at CM Uddhav Thackeray's attack. Fadnavis said, "How much faith Uddhav ji has on my weight. That's a good thing. ''Me To Ayodhya Ja Raha Tha, Babri Gira Raha Tha, Manir Bana Raha Tha, Tujhko Mirchi Lagi To Me Kya Karu?'' Uddhav Thackeray, in his Saturday rally, had rejected the claims of Devendra Fadnavis and the BJP that the BJP and Fadnavis had played a part in the demolition of Babri. In fact, CM Thackeray had said that even if Devendra Fadnavis had tried to bring down Babri, Babri would have fallen from his weight. Apart from this, he had also said that when Babri was demolished, the BJP leaders had hidden by pressing the dum. Balasaheb Thackeray had then said that he was proud that Shiv Sainiks had done this work.
In response to this, Devendra Fadnavis said on Sunday, "What I said was that when Babri was being demolished, we were shouting slogans that we will eat sticks and bullets, the temple will be built there, then we did not see any Shiv Sainik nearby. How chilly Uddhavji felt about this. I say it again. Me To Ayodhya Ja Raha Tha, Babri Gira Raha Tha, Manir Bana Raha Tha, Tujhko Mirchi Lagi To Me Kya Karu?''
He also said, "How much faith Uddhav ji has on my weight. Today I weigh 102 kg. When I went to the Babri demolition, my weight was 128 kg. Uddhavji, if you have put a dagger on my back and thought that I have lost the weight of my politics, then don't be in this misunderstanding. I am a weighty man. The more weight I put up, the more I keep it down. Remember, I will not sit at ease until I bring down the Babri of your corruption-filled power in the Mumbai Municipal Corporation with this weight. Yesterday there was a meeting of the Kauravas, today the meeting of the Pandavas is taking place. Hanuman Chalisa has already started, and now Lanka will be burnt. BJP's lotus will bloom in the Mumbai Municipal Corporation elections.''
