Don't teach us patriotism: Uddhav Thackeray to BJP

Patriotism, Uddhav Thackeray, BJP

Mumbai: Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray launched a scathing attack on the BJP last day, asking its ally to refrain from "teaching us patriotism".

"Don't teach us patriotism. The day when we need to be taught patriotism hasn't come yet," Thackeray said, addressing the annual Dussehra rally of his party at Shivaji Park in central Mumbai tonight.

"An atmosphere was created that those who favour demonetisation are patriots and those who oppose it are traitors," he said, referring to the central government's decision to withdraw high-value currency notes from circulation last year.

Thackeray appealed to Shiv Sena workers to refrain from launching personal attacks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as was seen during a recent Sena protest against inflation.
