A day after Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray called him a “useless” person,Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar returned fire on Sunday saying Shiv Sena is used to misguiding people and using uncivilised language. Pawar alleged that the Sena was trying to take credit for things it hasn’t done,to win public support.

He was speaking at a rally in Pune for Harshada Wanjale,the NCP candidate for Khadakwasla bypoll on October 13.

“On one hand,our government is trying to bring development and provide employment opportunities to youth. On the other,some parties are trying to assume importance by lampooning people in an unacceptable manner,” he said.

“We in our country follow different faiths and come from difference backgrounds. Depending upon our culture we have different language,habits and attire. But some people stoop so low that instead of respecting tradition,they make fun of people who have contibuted to the nation and their respective states,” he said.

He added that using such language and mimicking people won’t take them anywhere. He asked the people of Khadakwasla constituency to be wary of opposition tactics such as spreading rumours a few days before poll in a bid to confuse people and benefiting.

“There can be efforts to spread rumours in the constituency just before it goes to poll on October 13. It’s the job of our party workers to make sure no such thing occurs,” said Pawar.
