With Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut sharing dais with the opposition leaders including Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath and senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh, the event had seemingly political overtones ahead of the coming Lok Sabha polls.
"We are with N Chandrababu Naidu for the demand he is pressing for his state. Every state has its own role to play and every state has its own demands. We may have ideological differences but if the chief minister of a state is sitting on 'dharna' for his state, we must support the cause," said Raut.
Naidu said that Shiv Sena is not happy with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and thanked Shiv Sena for its support. "Uddhav Thackeray is the best friend of mine. Even Bal Thackeray was very affectionate towards me. I really appreciate Shiv Sena chief for extending his cooperation," said Naidu.
