I've no ego, will clear misunderstanding with Thackerays: Shah Rukhmumbai Updated: Feb 13, 2010 11:58 IST
Continuing his tirade against Ashok Chavan, Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray on Saturday asked whether the Congress leader was the Chief Minister of Maharashtra or Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan's bodyguard.
"Is Chavan the chief minister of Maharashtra or actor Shah Rukh Khan's bodyguard? If it is the latter, then he should adorn the uniform of a security guard and stand outside Khan's 'Mannat' bungalow here, saluting the passers-by," Thackeray said in an editorial in Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana'.
"What different work has Chavan done for the last seven-eight days," Thackeray asked and flayed Chavan for "siding with Pak-lover Khan."
The entire police force has been used as Khan's "slave and domestic help", Thackeray said, referring to the police action against Shiv Sainiks during the agitation against SRK-starrer My Name Is Khan.
"The only thing that remains is to erect a marble memorial for Kasab and his nine dead accomplices and ask policemen to salute it," the Sena chief said.
Thackeray had on Friday accused Chavan of "succumbing to vote-bank politics and deploying tight security with AK 47s to ensure that Khan's film release was smooth."
"He arrested thousands of Shiv Sainiks and beat them up till they bled and put them in jail. In the end there was no place remaining in jail. For one Khan, how weak and helpless the Chief Minister has become," he had said.
