MUMBAI: The political rivalry between Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray and former Shiv Sainik state Industries Minister Narayan Rane took a personal turn on Friday.

In riposte to Uddhav’s harsh criticism, Rane threatened that he would bring out skeletons in Uddhav’s closet if he flayed him again.

Rane, who has announced that he will quit the government on Monday, slammed Uddhav’s comment that turncoats did not have any place in the Shiv Sena. Flaying Uddhav, Rane said, “He said those who gave trouble to Balasaheb will not be re-inducted. He himself has troubled Balasaheb the most. He had left his house twice. If Uddhav criticises me again, I will expose his misbehaviour with Balasaheb,” Rane said.

Uddhav on Thursday said that he wanted to make the Konkan region, from where Rane hails, fear-free. Rane said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s wave had engineered Shiv Sena’s success in the recently held Lok Sabha elections and Uddhav had no role in the party’s achievement. Rane also took pot shots at Uddhav for advising the BJP not to induct him. “He cannot run his own party the right way, but advises others on what they should and should not do.” Rane clarified that he was adamant about quitting the government in spite of Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s request to reconsider the decision. “I will not comment on the high command. There are several lacunae in the Congress’ decision making process. Justice is not done to those who work for the party. I will explain the reasons behind quitting the government on Monday,” he said.

There is a speculation that Rane will slam Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan for his “indecisiveness” and invite disciplinary action from the Congress.

“He will invite suspension from the Congress by embarrassing the party and its leaders,” a source said. “Politics is not my bread and butter. I can do other things too,” Rane said.
