Raj Thackeray only provides free entertainment, should take up mimicry: Congress, NCP

Raj Thackeray

Congress-NCP today hit out at MNS president Raj Thackeray over his speech at Kolhapur, saying he provides "free entertainment" and should rather take up mimicry.

Reacting to Raj's statement last night that people should "cut off the hands" of migrants from other states if they indulge in crime in Maharashtra, NCP spokesman Nawab Malik said Raj was misleading the youth.

To Raj's allegation that Home Minister R R Patil's followers were threatening MNS workers and their family, Malik said Patil was not someone who threatens, but someone who acts against "who threaten others".

As to Raj's mimicry of other political leaders in his speech, Malik said, "He could become a mimicry artist."

When asked if NCP would demand action against Raj for provocative statements, Malik said, "He speaks in ifs and buts. Hence, his statements doesn't become liable for legal scrutiny."

State Congress spokesman Sachin Sawant described Raj's rallies as "free entertainment".

"The state has a long tradition of one-man shows. Raj can continue it. His proposed blue print for state's development is a farce," Sawant added.
