Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray has said that he aims to fulfill his father and late Shiv Sena Chief Balasaheb Thackeray dream of bring a government led by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Shiv Sena at the Centre and a Shiv Sena-led government in the State.

Mr Thackeray, while addressing a mammoth election meeting at Gandhi Maidan tonight for his party's candidate Sanjay Mandlik from Kolhapur Lok Sabha constituency and Raju Shetty (Swabhimani Party) from Hatkanangale said that although India has been having elections continuously since independence, it has remained in darkness because of a large number of scams.

Mr Thackeray said that the people were waiting for the day of voting to root out the Congress. He assured the people that a Shiv Sena-led government in the state would cancel LBT and toll tax.

He severely criticised Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar saying he was not worthy to stand as the 'Maratha Sardar' along with Maratha King Chhatrapati Shivaji. He said that when Mr Pawar left the Congress and formed Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) vowing he would never return to the party but now NCP is in alliance with the Congress in the state and at the Centre.

He also criticized on State Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar saying he was acting arrogantly. Divakar Ravte, senior Shiv Sena leader, Chandrakanat Patil, BJP MLC, Rajesh Khirsagar, Chandredeep Narke, and Sanjay Pawar, District Shiv Sens President were also present during the meeting.
