Mumbai, Dec 20 – Ahead of the national opposition INDIA block meeting in New Delhi, former Maharashtra chief minister and Shiv Sena (UBT) president Uddhav Thackeray on Tuesday dismissed that he nurture dreams of becoming the prime minister of the country.
“I am not dreaming of any leadership role (PM) for INDIA… If others are having such ambitions, they have the right… Even when I became the CM, it was with great responsibility, and when the time came, I left the post instantly,” Thackeray told reporters here.
He further said that nobody is being projected as the ‘PM face’ of the INDIA bloc vis-à-vis Bharatiya Janata Party’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, though the Opposition alliance will have to decide on the issue very soon.
“We have not puffed up anybody’s head for the post of PM… Our top priority is to save democracy and it is for this objective that all the political parties with different ideologies from across the country have united to challenge the BJP,” Thackeray said.
Their priority is to appoint a Coordinator for the INDIA bloc, which is likely to be finalised today, he added.
