MUMBAI: Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray has said that he would initiate an inquiry into the alleged multi-crore irrigation scam and probe the "hasty approval" of builder files by former CM Prithviraj Chavan, if his party is voted to power.    

"Once they (Cong-NCP) were good they are leaving no stone unturned to stab each other. One (Ajit Pawar) says he will file RTI queries to get the documents that Chavan signed and the other (Chavan) says law will catch up with him as it did with Jayalalithaa. But both of them should not worry. I will open all your files and get the truth out when voted to power," Thackeray said here last night.      

He was addressing a Dusshera rally at suburban Borivali that was attended by several Sena men as well as RPI leaders like Ram Pandagale and Arjun Dangle.

Thackeray also announced the construction of a Bal Thackeray memorial on capturing power.           

"We will ensure that a memorial of international standards of my father Bal Thackeray is constructed when we come to power in the state. But I do not want any favours from other parties for this," he said.              

Taking a dig at BJP's campaign slogan revolving around Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Maratha warrior king Shivaji Maharaj, Thackeray said that the Sena will not bend down.   

"Our king Shivaji Maharaj has taught us to not bow down before Delhi. So we will never do that," Thackeray said.        Playing the Gujarati card, Thackeray said it is the Sena, due to which Gujaratis are still present in Maharashtra.         

"In 1992 if the Sena had not been there, the Gujaratis would have fled to Gujarat. But we ensured their safety which is why they are in Mumbai today," he said.        

Yesterday, departing from its 40-year-old tradition, the Sena skipped holding the Dusshera rally in Shivaji Park owing to the model code of conduct being in force and instead performed a 'shastra puja' at the memorial of late Bal Thackeray there.
