Maharashtra Congress president

Ashok Chavan Tuesday alleged that Shiv Sena chief Uddhav

Thackeray's visit to Ayodhya was politically motivated and

meant to polarise votes.

Speaking to reporters here, he said Thackeray's visit

to the disputed site would not gain anything.

"Soon, there will be elections in Madhya Pradesh,

Rajasthan, Telangana, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram. He (Thackeray)

wants to take advantage and polarise votes. But people have

understood Uddhav Thackeray's intentions. He is doing all this

only for political gains," Chavan said.

Thackeray had announced in his party's Vijayadashmi

rally in Mumbai that he would visit Ayodhya on November 25 and

"question" Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the temple

construction issue.
