BJP Will Go Down To 2 Seats Says Shiv Sena

By Preeti Sigh On 01 Nov, 2018

Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray Thursday dared the BJP to claim that the promise of building a Ram temple in Ayodhya was a "jumla", asserting that it will go down from "280" Lok Sabha seats to two if it did so. Further attacking the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), he said the bricks collected for the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh were in reality not for the temple but steps that took it to power. Mr Thackeray was addressing Sena workers at Mahad in Raigad district, near Mumbai. The Sena and the BJP are allies in the governments in Maharashtra and at the Centre, but have constantly been at loggerheads over a host of issues. "The bricks that were collected for Ram mandir were in reality not for the temple, but were the steps to take you (BJP) to power. Say once that (the construction of) Ram temple was a jumla and you will be reduced to two seats from 280 (in the Lok Sabha)," the Sena president said.
