Uddhav was addressing a well-attended public rally at the KG Somaiya Grounds in Mumbai, organised on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Shiv Sena founder late Bal Thackeray.

Virtually launching his party's campaign for the Lok Sabha polls, Uddhav called upon Sena workers to work towards dethroning the Congress from power.

Raising the issue of Hindutva, he said it was a very important matter for the saffron outfit.

"When we raise the issue of Hindutva, they call us communal. Is it a crime to call us Hindus in our own country," he asked.

Lashing out at the Congress for "creating divisions" in the country for the sake of power, Thackeray said the Sonia Gandhi-led party's policies were "destroying us".

"Your (Congress-NCP's) days are numbered both at the Centre and in the state," he said.

Without naming the National Democratic Alliance’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, he said the next premier of the country and the chief minister in Maharashtra will be from the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Shiv Sena.

Taking a dig at the Congress for not naming its PM candidate, Uddhav said the fear of losing the forthcoming polls refrained the party from doing so.

"There is an anti-Congress wave in the country and in such a scenario who would like to sacrifice for that post," he said.

The Sena leader also slammed Union Home minister Sushilkumar Shinde, who hails from Maharashtra, saying he has not lived up to the expectations of the party.

"We should be proud the country's home minister is from Maharashtra but he has not lived up to our expectations," Uddhav said.
