Hindustan Times was first to report that the MNS was planning to project Raj as chief ministerial candidate for the upcoming polls. The MNS top brass is impressed with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s successful poll campaign.
According to MNS sources, Raj is likely to contest from two seats — Dadar-Mahim in Mumbai and Nashik — both are party’s strongholds.
Raj said in the next few days he will reveal details of his plan through a series of public meetings. The MNS which contested 10 seats in the Lok Sabha polls faced a disastrous defeat where it lost on all seats and even lost its deposits.
He slammed his party office bearers saying many of them ‘hung their boots’ during the Lok Sabha polls.
