Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray said Thursday that NCP chief Sharad Pawar only thought of his family while distributing tickets for the Lok Sabha elections.
Mr Thackeray was addressing a campaign rally in Maval constituency, where the NCP has fielded Parth Pawar, Sharad Pawar’s grand-nephew and senior party leader Ajit Pawar’s son.
Sharad Pawar’s daughter Supriya Sule is seeking re-election from Baramati.
“If not me, my son. If not son, my nephew. Do others have no children?” the Sena chief said.
“In Satara, we fielded son of a Mathadi (head-loader) worker,” he added.
The NDA has resolved to abolish Article 370 of the Constitution which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir, and ensure that anti-nationals “get hanged” through the sedition law, Mr Thackeray said.
Calling Bangladesh an “enemy”, he said late Sena patriarch Bal Thackeray had called for Bangladeshis to be kicked out of the country.
