Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray lashed out at Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar for endorsing the Lavasa Lake City project and proposing development of 26 spots near water bodies in the state on the lines of English tourist towns.
Thackeray was addressing a conclave of Shiv Sainiks in the city yesterday.

While slamming Pawar, Thackeray said, “You can see for yourself what kind of leader Pawar is. He did not speak about water, drought or farmers who are committing suicides. He only sees Lavasa everywhere. I wonder what interest he has in Lavasa?”
He appealed the Sainiks to put the Congress-NCP combine in its place during the upcoming assembly election, so Pawar does not pass such comments in future.
Without naming the leaders who want to rejoin Sena, he said, “Competing for the post is everyone’s ambition. There were many who bad-mouthed the party, but now they have expressed their desire to return. But we do not want such people.”
