Mumbai: Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Thursday said that three years ago, no one thought that he would share the stage with Sharad Pawar on Chhagan Bhugbal's birthday. Some things are written in luck. Uddhav was speaking at the Amrit Mahotsav organised to mark NCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal's birthday. At the same time, Ajit Pawar said that after the formation of NCP, if we had got 4 more months, the Chief Minister would have been from NCP. Uddhav further added that if Bhujbal had not left the Shiv Sena, he would have been the chief minister.
Sharad Pawar, Uddhav Thackeray, Javed Akhtar, Supriya Sule, Upendra Kushwaha, Ajit Pawar and Jayant Patil were present on the dais when he was speaking. October 15 is Chhagan Bhujbal's 75th birthday. Uddhav Thackeray said that now he is push proof. In Japan, if there is not a single day of tremors, people start feeling uneasy. It's the same with us now. He said that when Bhujbal left the army, it was a very difficult time for our family, but it was good that you met Balasaheb and sorted things out.
National Conference national president Farooq Abdullah, who was present at the function, said, "We are all with you. From Kashmir to Kanyakumari, the country has to be kept united. We all have differences but through friendship, we can make India only by coming together. Religion does not teach us to hate each other. Farooq Abdullah said that our religions may be different but they connect us. Does Lord Ram belong only to Hindus? He is also the God of the British, and the Russians, but everyone is being separated. They don't say we are Indians. I am a Muslim but an Indian Muslim. I am not a Chinese Muslim.''
