Raju Shetti, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena to launch public movt against use of EVMs
| Monday | 15th July, 2019
Mooting the need for all opposition parties to unite against the ruling BJP- Shiv Sena in the assembly elections, former MP and farmer leader Raju Shetti said he was working on launching a public movement against the use of electronic voting machines (EVMs) in collaboration with Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray.
However, we will decide our stance based on how things move forth with the alliance," said Shetti.
Shetti, who attributed his defeat to factors like the use of EVMs, said in his recent meeting with MNS chief Raj Thackeray, he had discussed the possibility of approaching the courts or launching a public movement against the use of EVMs.
Shetti split from his mentor in 2004 over his decision to ally with the BJP.
He later joined hands with the Congress and NCP, with whose sugar baron leaders, he had once fought street battles during protests to seek remunerative pricing for sugarcane.
