"Vasai is in Maharashtra and not Gujarat and we will not tolerate name boards in Gujarati anymore", said MNS Thane unit President Avinash Jadhav.
Chief Raj Thackeray lashed out against the Maharashtra government for providing a state funeral for Sridevi at a political rally held at Shivaji Park in Mumbai that was attended by thousands of his followers. At a party rally on Sunday on the occasion of Gudi Padwa, Thackeray had called for a united Opposition to bring down the Narendra Modi government at the Centre.
"If Raj Thackeray knows in advance about riots, then he and his party should not have hidden the information from the government", Kelkar said. "After Rajasthan, our state has reported the second highest rate of desertification in the country", he said. He said the issues is expected to be deliberated by certain parties extensively now as the Supreme Court is presently hearing the case.
"The Ram Mandir should be built, but it should not be used as an election plank to divide society and win votes", he said.
Thackeray also spoke about the late Bollywood actress Sridevi and how she was given state honours.
"But Akshay Kumar is not even an Indian citizen". He added, Nirav Modi looted thousands of crores of rupees and when the media was supposed to discuss on this scandal, media turned entire attention to Sridevi's death. When a person like Sridevi dies, you wrap her in Tri-colour & you say you did that because she was a Padma Shri. Attacking the BJP-led NDA, he had said that if demonetisation was ever probed, it would turn out to be the biggest scam ever. He said Akshay Kumar was trying to get into the footsteps of Manoj Kumar whom people had started calling "Bharat Kumar" because of the roles he took.
