"MNS would support either alliance on my terms and
conditions but would not participate in the government," Raj
told reporters here.
Asked if he would be supporting Congress-NCP or Shiv
Sena-BJP alliance, he said "all parties are the same... it may
be either Congress-NCP or Sena-BJP."
Raj rubbished cousin Uddhav Thackeray's insinuations that
MNS is dividing Marathi votes. "These allegations are
ridiculous. The Sena lost in 2004 when the MNS did not exist.
How can one say that my party divided votes?" he said.
Raj criticised the poll promise of Republican Democratic
Left Front to regularise slums till 2009 and said it is just a
ploy to attract voters.
"In fact, a strong message should go there (UP and Bihar)
that they (people from those two states) just cannot come here
and occupy space illegally," he said, adding laws should be
implemented strictly against encroachments.
Mumbai: Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS)
chief Raj Thackeray on Friday said he would support a winning
party or alliance after Maharashtra assembly polls be it
Congress-NCP or Shiv Sena-BJP.
