Uddhav Thackeray to visit Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar: Thackeray slams Modi government

Meanwhile, Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday said the Narendra Modi government has conferred Bharat Ratna on former Bihar chief minister Karpoori Thakur to get votes from the eastern state in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

Addressing a gathering of Shiv Sena workers in Mumbai, Thackeray claimed the Bharatiya Jana Sangh, which was the forerunner of the Bharatiya Janata Party, had opposed Thakur`s decision to give 26 per cent reservation to backward classes in government jobs, reported PTI.

“But now the BJP wants votes in the Lok Sabha polls from Bihar so announced the Bharat Ratna for him posthumously. I am happy his (Thakur`s) work is being acknowledged after so many years,” Thackeray said, reported PTI.

The BJP announced Dr S Swaminathan`s name for the Bharat Ratna but has failed to implement the recommendation made by a commission headed by him on increasing farm income, Thackeray further said, reported PTI.

People can see through this hollowness, Thackeray claimed, reported PTI.

The Union government announced five names for the Bharat Ratna, the country`s highest civilian award, this year.

They are former prime ministers P V Narasimha Rao and Chaudhary Charan Singh, agriculture scientist and father of India`s food revolution Dr S Swaminathan, Karpoori Thakur, a champion of backward empowerment, and BJP stalwart L K Advani.
