Uddhav Thackeray revealed why Balasaheb Thackeray said this for Modi
Now the question is, when and why did Balasaheb Thackeray say this for the current PM of the country, Narendra Modi? After all, what was the reason that Balasaheb Thackeray needed to say this to the people of his own party in support of Narendra Modi. This was disclosed by Uddhav Thackeray in his interview given to a newspaper in the month of May this year.
Uddhav Thackeray told that Balasaheb Thackeray had said this when the Godhra incident took place in Gujarat. Gujarat was burning. At that time the Prime Minister of the country was Atal Bihari Vajpayee. LK Advani was the Home Minister and Balasaheb Thackeray’s Shiv Sena was an ally of the BJP. Then the CM of Gujarat was Narendra Modi. Pressure was being created from all sides to remove him from the post of Chief Minister.
Balasaheb told Advani ji – Modi is Gujarat, otherwise Gujarat is history
In such a situation, LK Advani had come to attend a rally in Mumbai. Uddhav Thackeray says that during this time Advani told him that he wanted to talk something special with Balasaheb Thackeray. After this he and Pramod Mahajan left from there. Later Balasaheb Thackeray told Uddhav Thackeray and other people what had happened in that meeting. At this time Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee had made up his mind to remove Modi. Advani had asked Balasaheb for his opinion as an ally. Uddhav Thackeray told that only then Balasaheb Thackeray had said that Narendra Modi should not even be touched. If he goes, he will go to Gujarat.
Uddhav Thackeray further states in the same interview that in the year 2012, when Narendra Modi was contesting the assembly elections in Gujarat for the third time, Balasaheb Thackeray had also said that Narendra Modi is behind the progress that has taken place in Gujarat. He had already predicted the formation of Modi government. Citing Sonia Gandhi’s Gujarat rally, he said that she did not even mention Modi in her speech, which means Congress had already accepted defeat before the elections.
