Cobrapost sting being used for polarisation during elections: Uddhav
Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray has attacked Cobrapost sting operation that purportedly unravelled the conspiracy behind the demolition of Babri Masjid. Mr Thackeray was speaking yesterday during a campaign rally in Kanhan for party candidate Krupal Tumane contesting from Ramtek.
He alleged that the website had discovered the information after 22 years only to influence a particular section to vote against NDA.
He also questioned the role of intelligence agencies in the matter. ''I will uncover mask of the Cobrapost,'' he added.
In another sharp attack, the Sena Supremo raised questions over Congress president Sonia Gandhi's meeting with Jama Masjid Shahi Imam Syed Ahmed Bukhari and said, ''Can I meet Shankaracharya and get his confidence for the election?'.
''Congress calls us communal if we appeal to voters over Hindutva issue. However, no one dares to call Congress communal after its meeting with Imam Bukhari,'' Mr Thackeray said.
He also cautioned voters not to be allured by the money power offered by the UPA.
