Senior Maharashtra BJP chief Ashish Shelar on Monday made a arguable remark in opposition to Maharashtra Leader Minister Uddhav Thackeray and his birthday celebration, Shiv Sena, over “aligning with other people whose flags had the moon and celebrity” on it.
The crescent moon and the 5 pointed celebrity is an Islamic image. Mr Shelar used to be reacting to an interview of Mr Thackeray printed on Monday’s version of Sena mouthpiece Saamana, during which the Leader Minister stated he had now not requested for the moon and stars from former best friend BJP by way of asking it to fulfil the “promise” of equivalent sharing of the executive ministerial tenure.
The BJP had refused the call for all the way through govt formation talks with the Sena after the meeting election effects have been introduced in October ultimate yr.
“Guarantees made are meant to be fulfilled. There’s disappointment and anger of breaking a promise after which I had no possibility. I have no idea if the BJP has recovered from the surprise. What giant did I ask… moon or stars? I simply reminded them about what used to be agreed upon sooner than Lok Sabha elections,” Mr Thackeray instructed Saamana.
Hitting again, Mr Shelar stated, “I have no idea whether or not he requested for the moon or now not. However it kind of feels they (Sena) are sitting with the ones other people having flags with moon and celebrity on it.”
