Shiv Sena dares opposition to announce PM candidate, firmly backs Modi as next PM


Nagpur, Apr 8: Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray has firmly asserted that "Narendra Modi will remain the Prime Minister tomorrow also" and dared the opposition to announce its prime ministerial candidate.

Hitting out at Congress president Rahul Gandhi over his party's promise to abolish sedition law, the Shiv Sena chief said on Sunday that he will not be allowed to come to power by supporting "traitors".

"But, I want to ask why have Maha Aghadi come together who have conflicts between them. Who are these people? Our dream is for the country, what about you? Your dream is only power. Our prime minister will be Narendra Modi tomorrow also. And I want to ask the opposition to announce one name for the PM's post," said Thackeray.

Thackeray also took a potshot at Congress' promise in its manifesto to abolish the sedition law. "Do you agree with this?... Anyone who commits treason should be hanged," he said. "If Gandhi thinks he will come to power by supporting traitors, we will not let it happen," he added.
