Mumbai: Taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s foreign tours, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Monday pointed out that Pakistan and China are hostile towards India. He even said that India had failed to get international support for its issues with Pakistan and China.
In his interview to party mouthpiece Saamana, Uddhav has advised BJP that it would be an injustice to the nation if the senior ally remained embroiled in elections and internal politics without focussing on international policies. “What went so wrong on our part that caused such a severe unrest in Kashmir and made the dragon (China) our enemy? Are we lacking somewhere? The PM roams around the world, making friends. Then, why is that nobody is openly supporting us against these enemies?” Uddhav questioned.
Taking up the opportunity to lash at BJP, Uddhav said, “The BJP might be considering the Shiv Sena as its number one enemy. Maybe that is why Pakistan and China were left ignored. If they feel the Sena is a bigger enemy than these nations, it is their misfortune, not mine.” The reaction from Uddhav has come after a month-long border standoff between India and China in the Sikkim sector. According to Thackeray, China’s strength cannot be ignored and India needs to make an effort to match it.
