Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray on Thursday said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will not win even Zilla Parishad polls, let alone state and national elections, in the coming days, reported the PTI.

Uddhav Thackeray said that he was not fighting against Prime Minister Narendra Modi or any other person but opposing autocracy, as per the PTI.

Uddhav Thackeray was speaking at rallies in Matola, Chikhli and Jalgaon-Jamod in eastern Maharashtra's Buldhana district.

The budget presented by the Narendra Modi government earlier this month would be its last, Uddhav Thackeray said, adding, "the BJP would not be able to win power in Delhi, state or even Zilla Parishad (district local government body) for the next hundred years," according to the PTI.

Noting that the budget mentioned farmers, the youth, women and the poor, Uddhav Thackeray said it took prime minister Modi ten years to remember these sections of society.

Speaking at Chikhli, he claimed there were not enough government doctors to treat the victims of the recent incident of suspected food poisoning in Lonar area of Buldhana.

He also raised the issues of drought-affected farmers and unemployed youth in west Vidarbha.

Uddhav Thackeray also questioned the number of real beneficiaries of central schemes such as the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY).

PM Modi's recent speech in the Lok Sabha was not prime ministerial but was more like a BJP leader's speech, Uddhav Thackeray said, the PTI reported on Wednesday.

Praising the farmers who are protesting at Shambhu border over the demand of legally guaranteed Minimum Support Price, he urged farmers in Vidarbha -- which had become infamous for farmer suicides some years ago -- not to end their lives but fight for justice.

The present ruling parties (their ideological predecessors) made no contribution to the freedom struggle and we must not hand over the country's reins to them again, Thackeray said, without naming the BJP.

His party was fighting for saving democracy and resisting autocracy, he said at another public meeting at Jalgaon-Jamod.

"I am not against PM Modi or (Amit) Shah or any person. I am against autocracy," said Thackeray who parted ways with the BJP in 2019, the news agency reported.
