Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday asked the people in Maharashtra to throw Congress-NCP Government out of power and asserted that his party will rule the state after the next Assembly elections.
"Corruption has become rampant in the Congress-NCP Government, which is making all efforts to divert people's attention from important issues, he said, addressing a public rally at the powerloom town of Bhiwandi in this district adjoining Mumbai.
"People should vote out the ruling Democratic Front coalition in the next Assembly election, due in 2014, and bring back the Sena-led Opposition to power, he said.
The Sena-BJP alliance is out of power in Maharashtra since 1999.
Uddhav said, "NCP chief Sharad Pawar's dream of becoming the Prime Minister will never materialise. Likewise, his nephew and NCP leader Ajit Pawar is not going to become Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
