Mumbai [ TNN ] Prime Minister Narendra Modi shared the stage with underworld don Chhota Rajan’s brother Deepak Nikhalje at an election rally in Mumbai. Pictures clearly show Chhota Rajan’s brother welcoming Modi on the stage and shaking hands with him. The Prime Minister responded by taking Nikhalje’s name and greeting him. Deepak Nikhalje is the Republican Party of india (Athavale) candidate from the Chembur assembly constituency. RPI (Athavale) is one of the smaller parties that have entered into an alliance with the BJP.
Ironically, Modi spoke about bahubalis in his speech. “Meri Maharashtra ke logon se shikayat hai ki mai jab PM ka ummeedwar tha tab iske aadhi bheed nahi aati thi. Hawa ka rukh badal chuka hai. Chahe bahubali ho ya chacha bhatije ho koi bachne wala nahi (I have a complaint against the people of Maharashtra. There wasn’t half the crowd in my Lok Sabha rallies in Maharashtra when I was candidate for the prime ministership. But now winds of change are sweeping the state. Whether it’s a political goon as a candidate or the uncle-nephew duo (a reference to NCP leader Sharad Pawar and his nephew Ajit Pawar), no one will survive before the BJP in these elections,” said Modi.
