Shinde-Fadnavis in Ayodhya
Shinde on Sunday said the ideology of his party and that of the BJP is the same and they will unfurl the saffron flag all over the state next year.
“Our party’s role is clear. The Shiv Sena has an alliance with the BJP. Our ideology, which is Hindutva, is the same. We will go to our state with new energy from Ayodhya and serve the people. In 2024, the Shiv Sena and the BJP’s ‘bhagva’ (saffron flag) will be unfurled in the entire state,” he said while addressing a press conference here.
On his first visit to Ayodhya as Chief Minister, Shinde held a massive show of strength along with his MLAs in Ayodhya. Addressing a massive gathering, Shinde said it was Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray’s dream to build a “grand divine Ram Mandir in Ayodhya”, that Prime Minister Modi fulfilled by starting the temple construction on the holy land.
“It was Balasaheb Thackeray’s and millions of Ram devotees’ dream to build a grand divine Ram temple in Ayodhya… PM Modi has made this dream come true by beginning the construction of the Ram temple,” he said.
