Mumbai: Shiv Sena President and Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, while speaking at the meeting of Opposition leaders convened by Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi, strongly emphasised the need to win people’s trust and unity among all Opposition parties to take on mighty BJP.

Thackeray, who is heading the Maha Vikas Aghadi government with new allies NCP and Congress after he parted ways with BJP over sharing of CM’s post and power, made a strong case for putting in place an alternative to BJP ahead of the next general elections.

‘’We all have to build trust among the voters that a united Opposition can provide a formidable alternative to BJP. We will have to work together in the coming period,’’ said Thackeray.

Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Saturday said, "During the meeting, Thackeray stressed that the parties must win people's trust. As of today, there is no lust for power among the Opposition parties, but even when the chair of power is in sight, people should be able to trust the parties with the belief that they will remain strong and united."

Thackeray has once again indicated that he is prepared to play a major role in national politics along with other Opposition parties to put up a strong alternative to BJP.

Meanwhile, NCP Chief Sharad Pawar, who has been an ardent proponent of opposition unity with the active involvement of the Congress party, said, ‘’I truly appreciate the steps taken to organise this much-needed meeting in view of the present circumstances in our country. The current scenario in India appears very gloomy. The present Government has failed to address and resolve all these issues. Those who believe in democracy and secularism; those who like to work together for saving the democratic principles and ethos of our country must come together.’’

He further noted, ‘’A time-bound action programme needs to be taken up collectively and I strongly suggest that instead of dealing with all these issues together, we must collectively prioritise each issue and solve them one by one to give our country a good present and future.’’
