A day after MNS chief Raj Thackeray said the Aam Aadmi Party would not have an impact in Maharashtra and his party was its “baap” (father), the AAP has claimed workers from various parties, including the MNS, were making a beeline to join their party.

“After NCP and Congress, it is the MNS workers who are flocking to us for membership,” party leader Mayank Gandhi told The Indian Express.

Other parties whose workers are heading for AAP include BSP, SP and BJP, in that order, Gandhi said, adding that Shiv Sena is the least affected. “Perhaps because Sena is a cadre-based party and if Marathi manoos is the agenda, people think it can serve that purpose. But they could be wondering why stay with MNS,” Gandhi said.
