Mumbai: Once a bitter critic of the Congress government, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray on Sunday called the previous government better than BJP-led government.

Speaking to ANI, Thackeray said, "Unfortunately, I have to say Congress government was better than BJP."

The MNS supremo's remarks came as Hutatma Chowk was not decorated on Maharashtra Day.

This is not the first time Thackeray has criticised the BJP. He had earlier targetted the Prime Minister Narendra Modi accusing him of 'betraying the trust'.

"Which PM undertook so many foreign trips? Where are the 'achche din'," Raj had asked at a 'Gudhi Padwa' rally of his party at Shivaji Park.
