Maharashtra caretaker chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Sunday praised Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray and his strange action got media attention as the Sena-BJP relation almost came an end.
Fadnavis candidly said that he was always a source of inspiration. Fadvavis shared a video of a speech by Thackeray on Twitter and said he taught people the value of “self-respect”. In the video, Bal Thackeray can be seen along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“Hundreds of salutations to Hindu Hriday Samrat Bal Thackeray on his death anniversary,” Fadnavis tweeted in Marathi.
Fadnavis’ tweet is considered as part of a move to take BJP once again closer to Shiv Sena, though the relationship between these two parties has been worsened beyond repair. Some political sources said that BJP was trying to woo Shiv Sena again hoping to stitch a partnership.
