Uddhav Thackeray Apologizes for Endorsing Modi in Previous Elections

During an election rally in Ichalkaranji, Kolhapur district, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray accused the Narendra Modi government of betraying Maharashtra and apologized for endorsing Modi in the 2014 and 2019 polls. Thackeray claimed that Modi’s labeling of his party as a “fake” Shiv Sena was an attempt to pressure the Supreme Court regarding pending litigation over the party’s split. At the same rally, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) president Sharad Pawar criticized Prime Minister Modi for solely targeting him and Chief Minister Thackeray during his Maharashtra visits, instead of discussing his plans for the state. Pawar also accused the Centre of misusing central agencies, citing the arrests of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and former Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren in alleged corruption cases. Thackeray expressed regret for previously supporting Modi, citing the BJP’s betrayal of Maharashtra and the downfall of his government in June 2022, despite the Shiv Sena forming an alliance when no one else would. Accusing the BJP of exploiting the Shiv Sena in national elections while working against its candidates in assembly polls, Thackeray vowed to seek retribution after parting ways with the BJP in 2019.
