Mumbai: After being discharged from hospital, Amravati MP Navneet Rana took a jibe at Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. She compared him with former CM and senior BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis.
Speaking with news reporters on Monday, she said “Uddhav Thackeray got power because of his father [Bal Thackeray]. He should learn governance from Devendra Fadnavis.”
Navneet Rana, last month was arrested along with her MLA husband Ravi Rana for threatening to recite the Hanuman Chalisa outside Uddhav Thackeray’s home. She had said that she would raise the matter of her alleged mistreatment in jail with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla.
Rana is travelling to Delhi today. She has alleged that her health issues were not taken care off. She said, “I will travel to Delhi today. What happened to me from the lock-up to the jail, how they avoided my health issue… I’ll share all the details of how I was the first woman representative to be jailed in Maharashtra. What happened to me and my husband was injustice.”
She claimed that the Shiv Sena chief shouldn’t be preaching to people when he was the one who “backstabbed” the BJP for political gain.
Speaking with media, Rana had challenged Thackeray and Shiv Sena for a poll battle. She said that they will be taught a lesson in the upcoming civic body elections.
On April 23, Ranas were arrested following their announcement of reciting Hanuman Chalisa outside ‘Matoshree’, Thackeray’s private residence in suburban Bandra. They were booked under various provisions of the IPC, including charges of sedition and promoting enmity. The couple walked out of jail last Thursday, a day after getting bail.
