BJP leader compares CM Thackeray with Rahul Gandhi

A day after his thundering speech in the Maharashtra Assembly, a Bharatiya Janata Party leader compared Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray with Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday.

Responding to Thackeray's statement that the Centre puts nails on roads to stop the farmers' protests, but flees when China comes before them, BJP Mumbai legislator Atul Bhatkalkar slammed the CM for "insulting" the Indian soldiers guarding the borders.

"Uddhavji has become the 'Rahul Gandhi of Maharashtra'. The CM should apologise to the country for his slurs against the soldiers. The people will definitely teach him a lesson for this 'Rahul Gandhi-giri'," warned Bhatkalkar.

In the Assembly on Thursday, senior BJP leader Sudhir Mungantiwar warned that the MVA should not "cry" if President's Rule is imposed in the state for its alleged failures on various fronts.

Soon after Thackeray's speech on Wednesday evening where he took sharp potshots at the BJP and its top leaders, the state Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis retorted by accusing the Chief Minister of resorting to falsehoods on China, the demolition of the disputed structure in Ayodhya, and other issues, which were aimed at misleading the people.
