Chavan was addressing a campaign rally for NCP's sitting MP from Thane, Sanjeev Naik, here this evening. BJP would change the constitution if it came to power, Chavan claimed.
He also accused BJP of manipulating the media and reminded that in 2004 the party had claimed it would get a clear majority but it actually lost power. The person whom the United States had refused to give the visa after Gujarat riots cannot become the Prime Minister, Chavan said.
Chavan claimed Maharashtra had in fact seen much more development than Modi's Gujarat. Chavan also said Modi had virtually hijacked BJP and senior leaders such as Jaswant Singh and L K Advani had faced humiliation.
Later, talking to reporters, Chavan said Modi's refusal to apologise for 2002 Gujarat riots was a serious matter.
