Raj Thackeray’s Allegations Against Pawar

“If we are going to get involved in caste, what kind of Hindu and Hindutva are we going to carry? Hindu is only Hindu in Hindu-Muslim riots. He was Indian on 26th January and 15th August. We don’t know who he is when China invades. He used to be Marathi, Gujarati, Tamil, then when he was Marathi, he was Maratha, Brahmin, Agri. NCP, Sharad Pawar wants this,” Raj Thackeray said at his rally.

“NCP, Sharad Pawar want caste politics. When NCP was born in 1999, caste politics started on a large scale in Maharashtra. Earlier caste was about the pride of community. But after the birth of NCP in 1999, they started creating rifts between castes,” he further added.
