Rao, who arrived with a delegation of ministers, met Thackeray at his residence ‘Varsha’ where the two discussed how to unite parties to forge a united front against the BJP.
“Today, we spoke about the country’s politics, how to ensure the country’s progress and the current situation in the country. We have discussed ways on how to bring about an increase in the country’s growth, and how to do some structural changes in the country. We are talking to them and our other allies too to finalise a way (on forging an anti-BJP front) for the way ahead,” he told reporters after the meeting with Uddhav Thackeray.
Rao said his visit to Thackeray and Pawar would lead to a change in the country and that this would start from Maharashtra. “We have agreed on one thing — that the country needs a change. We want to fight injustice and illegal things happening in the country, we want to fight for democracy,” he said. “The country’s current environment should not be spoiled, and everyone should be working together.”
Thackeray said the BJP government was following the worst kind of politics in the country. “Governance has taken a back seat and a politics of revenge is being carried out. Attempts are being made to attack political rivals, these need to be broken. We have decided to give a change to the people of the country,” Thackeray said.
Rao, who was seated near Thackeray, kept nodding to the latter’s claims on central agencies attacking BJP’s political rivals. He said, “It (Central agencies) is being badly misused, there is no doubt on that. What is happening is wrong and we condemn it. The Centre should change its policy and if they don’t, then they would repent in future. The country has seen such incidents in the past,” he said.
Later on, Rao met NCP chief Sharad Pawar at his residence. NCP leader Praful Patel and others were present. Rao reiterated on the need for a ‘political change’ and ‘working together’ with non-BJP parties in the country.
“There is a proposal to meet in Baramati (Pawar’s stronghold). Whoever wants to join us, who is on our wavelength and wants to fight shoulder to shoulder, we bring them together and then present our agenda to the people,” Rao said.
Pawar claimed that they spoke little of politics but more of development issues. “Today’s meeting was very different. We discussed the problems before the country like unemployment, hunger, poverty, farmers’ suicides. We have a responsibility to look at these issues. We need to create a change in the country. So, we have decided to speak to others (non-BJP parties) and meet again,” Pawar said.
