The MNS is not contesting the elections but Raj Thackeray has been holding campaign rallies across Maharashtra, screening videos of Modi’s speeches delivered before and after the 2014 polls to highlight contradictions.
While the MNS is not contesting the Lok Sabha elections, Thackeray has expressed his support for Congress-NCP alliance candidates in the state. He has been holding election rallies and has repeatedly attacked Modi and the BJP.
Thackeray said the number of soldiers who have died in the last five years was higher than ever before. “More soldiers have died during Modi’s rule, but the Prime Minister was feeding cake to then Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif by making an unscheduled visit to Pakistan."
MNS leader Sandeep Deshpande said that in his election rallies, the party chief has started relying on the audio-visual medium to “remind people about what Modi had promised earlier” against what he has delivered.
Even as the MNS’s ties with the BJP have been strained, Thackeray and Modi have shared good personal equations. The attacks seem dictated by the MNS chief’s need to keep himself relevant at a time when his party’s political fortunes are dwindling.
