Targeting former Congress President Rahul Gandhi, Athawale questioned if he cannot manage his party properly, how he will govern the country. Ramdas Athawale Demands BJP-Shiv Sena to Allot 10 Seats to RPI For Contesting in Maharashtra Assembly Elections 2019.

"Even after doing well for five years, some people tried to malign PM Narendra Modi's image. But people had decided that there was no alternative to Modi Ji.
