BJP leader Gopinath Munde said on Thursday that the Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) should not seek votes using name of Narendra Modi and thus mislead people in Maharashtra.
Munde’s statement came just a day after BJP president Rajnath Singh snubbed the MNS for using Modi’s name in its campaign, asking the MNS either to join the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) or merge with the BJP.
“The MNS should not use Modi’s name and mislead people while seeking votes for its candidates”, Munde told reporters here in reply to a question.
