Uddhav slams PM, this time on Bihar

Uddhav Thackeray has struck yet another blow to the already fragile BJP-Shiv Sena alliance by slamming Prime Minister Narendra Modi for offering a Rs. 50,000 package to Bihar in view of the assembly polls.

Thackeray targetted Union minister for agriculture Radha Mohan Singh as well, saying that he had no moral right to continue in office after his controversial remark that farmers often committed suicide because of failed love affairs.

“Election shouldn’t be the consideration to offer financial packages to states. Such measures should be planned for those states which face problems. Maharashtra faces myriad problems because of monsoon failure,” Thackeray said at a south Mumbai hotel on Saturday. He was talking to mediapersons on the sidelines of a Sena function to flag off a e-learning project for Konkan schools.
