Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) president Raj Thackeray has taken up his cartoonist’s brush to target Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the occasion of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary. A cartoon drawn by Thackeray and uploaded on his Facebook page shows Modi alongside Gandhi.

While Gandhi is shown holding his famous autobiography, ‘My Experiments with Truth’, Modi’s caricature has a book with ‘My Experiments with Lies’ written on the cover. A line at the top of the cartoon says, “Both from the same soil.”

The MNS chief earlier used to contribute as a cartoonist to a weekly magazine called ‘Marmik’, which used to be published by his late uncle and Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray. Asked to comment on the cartoon, Maharashtra BJP spokesperson Madhav Bhandari said, “It is not necessary that the party should respond to every action of Raj Thackeray.”

      The MNS leader has no following except for threatening voilence when he feels upset over something.His comments has no relevence or value.It reflects his frustration like a spoilt brat. There are nomber of criminal actions by himagainst him in the past.The Maharashtra police has not acted against him.Such people will get bolder and create more law and order problem for that State.It is to be pondered why CM is not allowing the police to act against him.Modi could tame the Separatist and Hurriet in Kashmere. by making them accountable for their anti national activities.Why Devendar Phadnavis is hesitating to act against Thakrey.

          Saffron Dear in A democracy people are allowed to pin point mistakes and swear if promises are unkept and Oaths broken.To snatch and grab power M00dyji showed us dreams of prosperity and development reality we are bagged with heavy taxes, Cess and Stamp duties.We were promised job openings with Industrializations, what we are getting is slow down in economy, no investments, dwindling job market. What has increased is lynching, riots, atmosphere of hatred and division in society.Go reverse and see how Manu Smiriti Irani and Swaraj Nath protesting small rise in LPG and PNG , compare the price rise today.We cannot be so blind just for saffron color.

          Why don't he speaks about his our achievements instead of commenting about Modiji? He and his party is now a big zero.
