MP Navneet Rana has challenged Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to contest the elections against her. If you have the guts, come to the lake and get elected. Rana challenged Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to contest any constituency in Maharashtra. “We will work hard to get elected under our own name and trust,” she said. Rana also mentioned that they will understand the strength of the people.
“I challenge Uddhav Thackeray ji to choose a constituency and get directly elected by people. I will fight against him. I will work hard, and with honesty, and win the election, and he will come to know of people’s power,” the parliamentarian from the state’s Amravati Lok Sabha seat said.
Meanwhile, speaking about the Hanuman Chalisa episode, the Amaravati MP said she would not stop chanting the names of Lord Ram and Hanuman. “What crime did I commit that I was jailed for 14 days? Mumbai and Lord Ram will teach the Shiv Sena a lesson in the upcoming civic polls. I will campai Uddhav Thackeray, unlike the Ranas, is not a directly elected representative.
He became chief minister in late 2019 after then-ruling allies, Sena and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), went their separate ways. The Thackeray-led outfit then joined hands with the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress to form the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA), which governs the western state.
At the time of assuming charge as CM, Thackeray was not a member of either House of the state legislature. He was elected unopposed to the legislative council–the Upper House–in May 2020, thus retaining his chair.
