Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray today took a dig at its ally and said that ground realities have remained unchanged despite BJP coming to power at the Centre, promising ‘Acche Din’.

Even 50 years are not enough to clean up the mess created by the erstwhile government. But a lot has to be done in the next five years to fulfill the aspirations of people. You (the BJP) had promised ‘Acche Din’ to people and thus cannot cheat them now.

To a question, Thackeray said that even though the governments have changed at the Centre and in the state, nothing much has changed on “ground”.

Every morning when we open a newspaper, we keep reading the same news that once bored us...The thought which comes to our mind is that we used to read the same news before. Be it farmers’ suicide, protests of the unemployed people, crimes against women.
