MNS chief Raj Thackeray has come out in support of Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, justifying the latter’s decision to boycott Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s programme in the city. Thackeray was in Nagpur on Sunday to conduct interviews of ticket aspirants for the forthcoming Assembly polls.
Talking to mediapersons, he said: “Had the same (heckling of the CM) happened to a BJP CM, they (BJP) would have reacted in the same manner.”
Thackeray also declared that he won’t fight the Assembly election himself saying he belonged “to the entire state and not to any particular constituency”.
He added that his party would go it alone in the elections and would fight most seats in the state.
Protesting workers took to the street refusing to pick up garbage in the area and instead spread rotting garbage across the roads.
