When Shinde speaks, he says too would have raised his voice but for bad throat. Shinde keeps his speech short but touches the same topics which he did at other rallies. The crowd, like elsewhere, hears him out with rapt attention.
The CPI(M) has a strong base in Solapur. BJP’s Jaisiddheshwar Mahaswamiji, Congress’s Sushil Kumar Shinde and Ambedkar are in the fray from the constituency. Ambedkar has tied up with the AIMIM to float the BVA, which will contest all the 48 seats in the state.
Sushil Shinde become the new general secretary of AICC. The latest development comes a day after senior Congress leader Ambika Soni had asked the party to relieve her as in-charge of the states of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand citing health reasons.
Shinde's statement came in the backdrop of the claim by Union Home minister Rajanth Singh who said the government's fight against terrorism got weakened after the use of the word by the UPA government.
