Raj Thackeray terms LS poll results 'incomprehensible'

Mumbai: MNS chief Raj Thackeray, who had vociferously campaigned against the BJP, Thursday termed the Lok Sabha poll trends suggesting a landslide victory for the ruling party as "beyond rationale" and "incomprehensible".

"Beyond rationale! #Verdict2019," the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief tweeted. In another post on the micro-blogging site, he said the results were "anakalniya" (incomprehensible).
