'We considered Uddhav Thackeray as elder brother, but..': Chandrashekhar Bawankule

Mumbai: BJP's Maharashtra unit chief Chandrashekhar Bawankule on Saturday said Shiv Sena chief and former CM Uddhav Thackeray is in a situation where he will have to agree even if the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) give his party just two seats to contest the Lok Sabha elections in Maharashtra.

According to the report, BJP president Bawankule, while speaking to the media, said that during the alliance with the Shiv Sena, the BJP had treated Uddhav like an elder brother. Bawankule claimed that the Congress has already staked claim to the Ramtek Lok Sabha constituency.   Which was earlier held by Shiv Sena. In 2019, Uddhav broke the alliance with the BJP after a dispute over the CM's post. Subsequently, he had formed the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) alliance by joining hands with the Congress and NCP and occupied the CM's post. However, uddhav's government collapsed last year after MLAs led by Eknath Shinde rebelled.

Maharashtra has a total of 48 Lok Sabha seats. The Shiv Sena had won 18 of these seats in 2019. "Even if Sharad Pawar or Sonia Gandhi ask Uddhav's party to contest only two seats, they will have to agree as they will be left with no other option. It was the BJP which treated Uddhav like an elder brother and gave him a seat as per his wish."
