Bal Thackeray renames Raj as `Dhanajirao`

On his 43rd birthday on Monday, MNS chief Raj Thackeray got a gift he could have done without -- the nephew was christened `Dhanajirao` by uncle and Shiv Sena chief Raj Thackeray.

Mumbai: On his 43rd birthday on Monday, MNS chief Raj Thackeray got a gift he could have done without -- the nephew was christened `Dhanajirao` by uncle and Shiv Sena
chief Raj Thackeray.

Dhanajirao is an euphemism for one who is wealthy or hankers after money.

The title is the latest in a series of such nicknames given by the 83-year-old Sena chief in his over four decade- old political career.

The Sena chief has earlier called NCP chief Sharad Pawar "maidyache pote" (sack of flour), a reference to the Maratha strongman`s girth.

Thackeray later famously termed Chhagan Bhujbal, who quit his party to join Congress in the 90s, as `Lakhoba` (a character in a popular Marathi play), and Narayan Rane, who
quit Sena in 2005 to join Congress, as `Naroba`.

"Now that Dhanajirao (Raj) has confessed MNS MLAs
voted for Congress in last week`s Legislative Council
elections in return for revoking suspension of four MNS MLAs,
everybody knows how transparent the poll process was," the
Sena supremo said in party mouthpiece `Saamana`.

After the Council poll, Thackeray had alleged that MNS
was bought over by Congress.
