Ashok Chavan, the sitting from Nanded, is pitted against BJP's Pratap Chikhalikar, an MLA from Loha seat in district.

"Modi has fooled people for the last four and a half years.. In every election rally of his, he keeps talking of irrelevant issues, criticises (former PMs) Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, However, he does not talk about rising unemployment, farmers issues and women's safety," he said.

Thackeray said the word "pradhansevak" used by Modi has actually been taken from Nehru's statement.

"Modi calls himself pradhan sevak. This word has actually been taken from a statement of Pandit Nehru, where he says people should not remember him as a but a pratham sevak. Modi has changed the word to pradhan sevak," he said.

Thackeray said the should be ashamed to seek votes in the name of martyred soldiers.

".. Yogi Adityanath says the country's army is Modi's army. Today Modi asks first time voters to vote for the jawans who conducted the Balakot air strike and the jawans killed in the Pulwama attack. Does he not feel ashamed to ask for votes in the name of jawans?" the questioned.
