Mumbai: Hitting back at Shiv Sena leader
Uddhav Thackeray`s `namak haram` remarks, MNS chief Raj
Thackeray on Wednesday said his estranged cousin was upset because
Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi ignored him during the
recently concluded three-day fast.
"I feel it is because Modi does not give him (Uddhav)
value (during the fast), that may be the reason for
irritation," Raj told reporters a day after Shiv Sena
executive president called him disloyal.
"If this is the reaction to my single sentence, what
will happen in (BMC) elections," Raj said, adding that he
would come out with damning revelations (against Uddhav and
Sena) after Diwali.
"Then you see, what all comes out," he said.
Uddhav yesterday had said, "Compared to such `namak
haram` (disloyal) animals, it is better to photograph loyal
animals in the jungle,". He was responding to Raj Thackeray`s
remarks that the Shiv Sena leader should concentrate on
clicking the potholes that dot the city, instead of
photographing wild animals.
The Mumbai civic body is controlled by the Sena-BJP
Raj quit Shiv Sena on December 18, 2005 and three
months later, announced formation of a new party.
