Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray said Thursday that India should be declared a Hindu Rashtra, and demanded imposition of uniform civil code in the country.
“They are speaking about laws banning beef in the country. They should first announce that this country is a Hindu Rashtra and impose the uniform civil code,” Thackeray said at the party’s annual Dussehra rally at Mumbai Shivaji Park. His speech was keenly awaited in the backdrop of growing rift between the Sena and its senior alliance partner, the BJP, in the state.
He chose to target the BJP on the issue of Hindutva, projecting the Shiv Sena as the only saviour of Hindus in the country. Thackeray, however, made it clear that he was not keen on snapping ties with the BJP as yet.
