Following the resignation of Eknath Khadse, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Thackeray said that BJP should think why its foundation is being laid.
The chief minister said of the former president of his party, “When someone like Eknathji Khadse, who is expanding the BJP’s base, left the party, the BJP should think why its foundation is falling.
“If the foundations are closing, there is no point in reaching the summit,” he said. Thackeray was speaking in Osmanabad where he reviewed the damage caused by heavy rains and floods last week.
“Earlier, we (Shiv Sena) left the NDA, the Shiromani Akali Dal also recently left the alliance. Now Khadse is also not with BJP. Therefore, the BJP should think about it. As an old friend of BJP, it is my duty to warn them.

Thackeray also said that he is ready to welcome Khadse to the family of Maharashtra Development Council (MVA), which includes Shiv Sena, Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP).
Khadse on Wednesday announced his resignation accusing former Maharashtra Chief Minister and now Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis of taking such a step. He said that through police, Fadnavis fabricated false cases against him.
“The then CM (Devendra Fadnavis) directed the police to file an FIR against me on a false charge of harassment by a woman. He said that the matter would later be withdrawn. A corruption investigation was started against me, in which I came clean. I suffered a lot in the BJP, ”he said while talking to the media.
Khadse further said that he would join the NCP on 23 October.
