MUMBAI: The violence at Koregaon-Bhima was a conspiracy against the State government and BJP, alleged Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis at a BJP State executive meeting at Dadar here on Tuesday.
BJP State President Raosaheb Danve presided over the meeting.
Fadnavis asked the party cadre to start preparation for the Assembly and Parliament elections. "Some sections of the society are trying to disturb the fabric of the society," he said.
“Koregaon-Bhima was a conspiracy against the State government. But we fulfilled our responsibility extremely well. Similar situation may arise prior to Assembly and Parliamentary polls. Therefore, BJP activists must work together to bring all citizens under the Tricolor and work towards maintaining harmony,” Fadnavis said.
He said anti-social elements are trying to malign the image of the state and central governments. “Party activists must concentrate on building the party as well as connecting with as many people as possible,” he added.
Danve claimed that attempts are being to harm the government’s image by certain sections which are threatened by the developmental works undertaken by this government.
