Mumbai: In an veiled attack on Shiv Sena, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray today slammed political parties for indulging in activities like blood donation camps instead of working for the people.

"Are distribution of note-books, fruits and organising blood donation camps the works of political parties? Instead they should concentrate on development works," Raj said in a programme here.

A blood donation camp was organised by Sena executive president and Raj's estranged cousin Uddhav Thackeray on April 25 to mark the Golden Jubilee year of foundation of the state. Over 25,000 of blood bottles were collected on the day.

Advising political parties to solve the people's issues, Raj said "I was passing from this area and noticed a water pipe theft and promptly took up steps to stop it. It is high time political parties rise above such drives and do what people need."
