We have seen many Maratha CM, we want Brahmin to lead Maharashtra: Ramdas Athawale

For this, no one is better than Devendra Fadnavis, said the Union Minister Ramdas Athawale

Since 1960, we have given chance to many Maratha community leaders to lead the Maharashtra state. Now, we want the Brahmin community person to be the chief minister of the state after the forthcoming 2024 elections. We will fully support the BJP for that, said Union Minister and Republican Party of India (Athawale) Ramdas Athawale while meeting a media person at the Payyade Hotel in Mira Road.

MBMC has scheduled a ceremony on Monday and inaugurated various developmental projects including- Buddha Vihar, a swimming pool, distribution of flat keys to slum dwelling beneficiaries under the BSUP project and the 90-meter hydraulic aerial ladder platform (HALP) firefighter. Before the event, he met the media persons and said, “I come from Bahujan community but demands Brahmin Chief Minister in Maharashtra State in 2024 and for this, no one is better than Devendra Fadnavis. We fully support BJP for this.”

BJP-RPI(A) will form government in 2024

Predicting the future of the next election, Union Minister said: “Shiv Sena, which was with us before the 2019 Assembly election, has made a big mistake in the state. He has formed a government with NCP and Congress. However, this government will not come to power again in the coming 2024 elections. The BJP and RPI(A) will form the government in the state with full majority.”

Praising the former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, he said: Earlier, five years (2014-2019) we have seen Fadnavis Ji. He is suitable for this post and he is also a leader of the Maratha community along with Bahujan Samaj.”

RPI(A) chief also praises Prime Minister Narendra Modi and counted all the schemes and yojanas to the media persons. He also mug up the budget allocated by the central government for all these schemes. However, he ditches the question of inflation, unemployment and petrol & other fuels prices.    

Should Raj Thackeray apologize to North Indians?

When the media persons asked the question on an issue raised by the Gonda MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, showing a soft corner towards Raj Thackeray, he said: Earlier, his party flag carries all the colours, viz. saffron, blue, white and green. Now, he changed the party flag colour to saffron.  According to Buddhism, saffron is a symbol of ‘peace’ and that he would work for peace in the state.

He further said, “Since Raj Thackeray is a Hindu, he should visit Ayodhya regularly. However, before this tour, he should first apologize to all such North Indians and then visit Ayodhya. What he had done was wrong,” said Ramdas Athawale.
