Mumbai: The shaky relationship between Raj Thackeray and Narendra Modi became evident on Thursday when the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) president said the Bharatiya Janata Party`s prime ministerial candidate should leave the Gujarat Chief Minister post.

Slamming Modi, Thackeray said: "If you want to be the PM, then leave the CM post. Don`t just talk of Gujarat but the whole nation"
“You come to Maharashtra and speak about Sardar Patel`s statue. Why don`t you talk about Shivaji Maharaj,” asked the MNS chief.

The BJP has hit back at the MNS chief, saying there is no question of Modi resigning as the Gujarat CM.

Thackeray had earlier supported Modi`s bid for becoming Prime Minister.
However, the equation between the duo changed probably when Modi compared development in Maharashtra and Gujarat at a rally in Mumbai in December last year.
