The Sena chief said that if the temple is not made perhaps this government will also not last but the temple will definitely be made
The Shiv Sena has recently been vocal in slamming the BJP over bringing a law to build the Ram Mandir
Thackeray said that during his visit to Ayodhya on November 25, he would "seek an answer" as to how many more elections will people be fooled with the slogan.
Further attacking the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), he said the bricks collected for the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh were in reality not for the temple but steps that took it to power.
Patil's statement is seen as the latest overture by his party to placate the Sena, which had announced to contest all future polls on its own strength.
At a rally here on Tuesday, Thackeray wondered if Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis would declare drought only after consulting the "panchang" (astrological daily calendar).
Addressing a meeting of block workers of his party here in the Marathwada region, Thackeray said he would visit the Uttar Pradesh town on November 25 and question Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the temple issue.
It costs Uddhav nothing to raise the rhetoric on the Ram Mandir. But for the Modi government, the stakes are very high. People are already beginning to question why, after such a huge majority, the government could not lay a single stone for the temple in Ayodhya.
Thackeray was addressing party workers at the Sena's annual Dussehra rally at Shivaji Park here.
"The Sena has always championed the cause of Ram temple in Ayodhya. The BJP, despite being in power for four years, has not yet fulfilled its commitment of building a grand Ram temple there," he said.
He said the government should submit evidence in the court instead of revealing everything before the media.
Sena said the police assertion about security threat to Prime Minister Narendra Modi from Maoists was just a "conspiracy theory".
Terming Vajpayee as an "innocent politician" and the "Bheeshm Pitamah", Thackeray said the former PM remained unaffected by ego that comes along with power in politics.
Thackeray made a veiled reference to BJP president Amit Shah writing to the Law Commission, pitching various benefits of holding simultaneous elections to Lok Sabha and state assemblies in the country.
The Sena chief also found fault with the way the BJP was protecting cows, and giving short shrift to women safety.
"Uddhav-ji has asked all party MPs to be present in Delhi tomorrow and they will be told by the Sena president about the party's decision by morning," Harshal Pradhan, a close confidant of Uddhav Thackeray, said here.
"The Ghatkopar incident should be considered as a warning for an impending danger. Mumbai's geography, rising population, cramped and tall buildings needed to be studied with respect to movement of aircraft and their security." Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana' warned.
A senior Sena leader said that Thackeray conveyed it to Pradhan that a meeting was pointless, as an MoU between Saudi Aramco and ADNOC to develop the refinery at Nanar in Ratnagiri has already been inked.
Addressing Sena workers on the party's 52nd foundation day, Thackeray said the BJP spread "lies" ahead of the 2014 general elections and made false promises to people to win the mandate.
Addressing party cadres at Palghar, Thackeray referred to his meeting with Amit Shah yesterday and said, "Whatever is going on now is all drama".
For the BJP, reaching out to allies is crucial to shore up support for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Uddhav Thackeray's son Aaditya Thackeray were also present at the meeting which lasted about two hours.
The newspaper, which is run by senior Sena leader Sanjay Raut, called Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi wilful defaulters in alliance management.
"Winds of change of governance are blowing in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. Change of governance is inevitable in Maharashtra as well. Amit Shah intends to win 350 seats in the Lok Sabha on the BJP's own strength. He says Ram Mandir will be built then. His stubbornness needs to be saluted," the Sena said.
"Amit Shah sought time to meet Uddhavji. Accordingly, an appointment of tomorrow evening has been given to him," Sena MP Sanjay Raut told PTI.
