Modi reaches out to Uddhav
‘One should not introduce parochialism. It should not be that Andhra Pradesh leaders rescue only Andhraites and some other chief minister rescues people from his state only. If one is a national leader, he should be concerned about everyone from every part of the country,’ said Sinha.
His comments come at a time when Modi visited Uttarakhand and reportedly rescued Gujarati pilgrims.
Meanwhile, the Gujarat chief minister reached out to Shiv Sena in Mumbai on Thursday. Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray had recently slammed Modi for his ‘rescue efforts’ in Uttarakhand. The Gujarat chief minister, who is not on best of terms with Sena chief, met Thackeray for about 20 minutes. The meeting was described as a courtesy call by Modi.
Sena is the oldest ally of the BJP, with whom it had run a coalition government in Maharashtra between 1995 and 1999.
