Launching a veiled attack on the Shiv Sena and BJP,Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan Friday alleged Opposition parties were playing the “communal card” to polarise voters ahead of Lok Sabha and Assembly elections.

“In view of forthcoming elections,Opposition parties are dividing people along caste and religion lines and are trying to spread communal hatred. Communal riots in Uttar Pradesh is a recent example of this strategy,” Chavan said at a rally at Bhokardan in Marathwada region.

Chavan said communal politics had become a major challenge for secular forces.

Referring to Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi’s interaction with party workers in Nagpur and Pune recently,Chavan said the party cadres are now confident on taking on opponents.

The CM claimed his party had fulfilled all promises made in the manifesto of 2009 assembly elections.

He asked Congress workers to spread awareness about various welfare schemes launched by the Centre and state governments.
