‘Will Sonia Gandhi do the same for Balasaheb’: Netizens question as Uddhav Thackeray offers floral tribute to Rajiv Gandhi

Some Twitter users asked whether Rahul Gandhi will be seen paying respects to Shiv Sena founder Balasaheb in a similar manner.

On the occasion of the birth anniversary of former PM Rajiv Gandhi, Maharashtra CM and Shiv Sena chilf Uddhav Thackeray has reportedly offered floral tributes.

As soon as the image of the Maharashtra CM paying respects on the birth anniversary of Rajiv Gandhi was circulated, several social media users started questioning whether the Shiv Sena will ever witness a similar gesture from Sonia Gandhi when she remembers and pays respect to their founder Balasaheb Thackeray.

Some social media users also highlighted the irony of Balasaheb’s son paying a floral tribute to Rajiv Gandhi before the firebrand Hindutva leader’s picture.

Some Twitter users asked whether Rahul Gandhi will be seen paying respects to Shiv Sena founder Balasaheb in a similar manner.

Some users went a step ahead and rememberered Balasaheb’s famous words about Congress and its supporters.

Shiv Sena had forged an alliance with a the Congress and NCP for the formation of Maharashtra government after the 2019 assembly elections.
