‘Muh me Ram, bagal me Rahul’: BJP MOCKS Uddhav Thackeray on Bharat Jodo Yatra Invitation

Bombay: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has mocked Shiv Sena’s president and former chief minister of Maharashtra, Uddhav Thackeray, for agreeing to welcome Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who leads the ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra when it reaches Nanded. Maharashtra BJP chief spokesman Keshav Upadhye said Rahul Gandhi has taken the place of Lord Ram in the Hindutva politics of Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray.

The saffron party leader mocked his former ally after Thackeray accepted Congress’s invitation to welcome Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ to Maharashtra. Speaking to reporters here, BJP’s chief spokesman, Keshav Upadhye, said: “Uddhav Thackeray never left home even for his party, but now he has gone out to welcome Rahul Gandhi.”

“Uddhav’s father, the late Sena founder Bal Thackeray, arranged for prominent personalities to visit his residence, but now “time is taking revenge by letting Uddhav Thackeray go to Nanded to welcome Rahul,” he said. For Thackeray, it’s “Muh me Ram, bagal mein Rahul,” the BJP spokesman said.

The old Hindi proverb ‘Muh me Ram, bagal me chhuri’ is used to describe someone who pretends to be pious but harbors evil intentions. Thackeray never took to the streets for Hindutva or participated in the Rath Yatra organized by BJP leader LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi, Upadhye further said.

The Sena and BJP, allies for three decades, split in 2019 after a bitter dispute over the prime minister’s position.
