 'Gadkari was favourite minister of Balasaheb Thackeray': CM Eknath Shinde | India News - Times of India

Nagpur: CM Eknath Shinde The Union Minister said Nitin Gadkari. K was the “favourite minister”. Shiv Sena Founder Balasaheb Thackeray, during his tenure in the state government in the 90s. Joining Gadkari on Sunday evening during the former’s election campaign, Shinde said it was Balasaheb who gave Gadkari the popular name ‘Rodkari’.
Gadkari was a PWD minister in the 90s, when the Shiv Sena-BJP alliance first came to power in Maharashtra.
“I want to tell you that Gadkari was the most favorite of all our Balasaheb Thackeray’s ministers. Because of Gadkari’s work in building infrastructure, Balasaheb named him ‘Rodkari’. When he flew to Mumbai They were called ‘Pools’ when they were made over. Pul)-Kari’, Shinde said. He added that Gadkari would win the Nagpur Lok Sabha seat by a record margin. Gadkari’s campaign yatra was passing through the south-west Nagpur assembly constituency. , represented by Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.
Earlier in the day, Shinde met Sena officials, besides addressing a select group of doctors and businessmen at separate events.
During the conversation with the doctors, Shinde mocked former Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray without naming him. “I am not a doctor but I have done major operations in the last two years. I have removed belts (support belts) from many people’s necks,” Shinde said. Thackeray’s surgery was done when he was C. M, and was seen wearing a neck support belt at the time.
But CM Shinde’s visit to Nagpur was clearly about persuading former Shiv Sena MP Karpul Tamane, who was not given a ticket from the Ramtek constituency, to ensure that his party The official candidate of Raju Parve should not face internal differences in the elections. At three separate public events in Nagpur on Sunday, CM Shinde praised Tumane and promised his supporters a ‘big role’ to make up for the lost chance of a hat-trick from the Ramtek Lok Sabha seat.
“I will not rest till Tamane is given a bigger role than Lok Sabha MP,” Shinde said while addressing a gathering of Sena party workers. His statement seemed to have the desired effect as Tumane’s supporters in the crowd responded with loud applause.
Playing to the gallery, Shinde further praised Tamane, saying, “It’s not easy to give up a claim for a seat. We know what people do for tickets for local elections, and here we are talking about the Lok Sabha.” The CM said that despite being an MP twice, Tumane sacrificed his seat claim for the party.
“That’s why today I presented a shawl to Tumane,” said Shinde, “He has promised me that Parve, our party’s candidate, will take him over the victory line. Tumane has guaranteed that Parve They will have full support.
This comes as a big relief to Parve, who joined the Sena earlier this month from the Congress after being guaranteed a ticket for the Ramtek seat. Parve won the 2019 assembly elections from Umrid, which is part of the Ramtek constituency. His entry had sparked discontent among BJP workers, apart from Tamane’s supporters, who were seeking the seat for themselves.
Now with Shinde publicly consoling Tamane, Prave can at least breathe a sigh of relief from his party.
Talking to his party workers, Shinde urged them to think from a national perspective during elections. “Our job is to ensure the victory of Narendra Modi and make him the Prime Minister of India once again. Shinde said that the number of seats in the Lok Sabha is to cross 400.
