A day after he addressed two rallies rally in Mumbai, during which he lambasted Shiv Sena and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief continued his tirade against the saffron parties.

After ridiculing Sena for using late party supremo Bal Thackeray’s legacy to gain brownie points before the BMC elections, the MNS chief trained his gun on chief minister Devendra Fadnavis.

Raj took a dig at Fadnavis by comparing him to a class monitor who is favourite of his teacher [Modi], but disliked by other students, and is good at dishing out figures.

“People who have occupied their chair on merit should make promises. Has Devendra Fadnavis taken Modi’s permission while making promises?” the MNS chief said, adding, “BJP shared power with Shiv Sena for 25 years and shared the spoils. Only this year, they realised that the Sena is corrupt. BJP is truly the party with a difference —only they have the money and others don’t have.”
