‘He needs to introspect’: Uddhav Thackeray worked hard in elections but Congress, NCP (SP) benefitted more, says BJP | Mumbai News

MUMBAI: BJP leader Chandrakant Patil acknowledged Uddhav Thackeray‘s significant efforts during the Lok Sabha election campaign. Despite Thackeray’s hard work, Patil noted that the Congress and NCP (SP) appeared to have reaped more benefits than Thackeray’s party.
At an event in Mumbai, Patil, a senior Maharashtra minister, remarked, “Uddhav Thackeray’s health was not in good condition, still he took a lot of efforts.I was worried about his health. However, the outcome indicates that NCP (SP) and Congress benefitted more from his efforts than his own party.”
He said the difference in Thackeray’s party performance when allied with the BJP versus the Congress and NCP (SP). “When Thackeray was with BJP, his party had won 18 Lok Sabha seats. With Congress and NCP (SP), he ended up winning nine seats. He needs to introspect,” Patil said.
Thackeray’s Shiv Sena (UBT) contested 21 out of 48 Lok Sabha seats in Maharashtra but managed to secure only nine wins. Meanwhile, Congress contested 17 seats and emerged victorious in 13. Furthermore, a Congress leader and rebel candidate in Sangli also won and later extended support to the party. The NCP (Sharadchandra Pawar) contested 10 seats, winning eight.
Patil also made a pointed comment regarding Thackeray’s voter base. “Thackeray also earned a tag of winning due to the votes of minorities. An MNS leader has also put it succinctly, saying the colour of Uddhav’s victory is not saffron but green.”
