‘Sachin`s RS nomination is real Dirty Picture`
Mumbai: Commenting on the nomination of cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar to the Rajya Sabha, Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray on Sunday said it was the "dirtiest play" of Congress.
"It is Congress` dirtiest play...The real Dirty Picture is this", Thackeray said talking to reporters after he was conferred with a lifetime achievement award by Raipur-based magazine `Cartoon Watch` at a function here.
Asked how would he draw Sachin`s cartoon, Thackeray, who ran a cartoon magazine before founding Shiv Sena, said that in some cases "a mere photograph is enough" and there is no need to draw a cartoon.
Yesterday, in the editorial in Sena mouthpiece Saamana, Thackeray had said that Congress must have an ulterior motive in nominating Sachin to the upper house of the Parliament.
"Crores of Sachin`s fans would have liked to call him `Bharat Ratna Sachin Tendulkar`. Alas, he would now only be Sachin Tendulkar, MP", the editorial said.
