Raj Thackeray's surrogate campaign for Congress-NCP an attempt to bring MNS back on track
This line by Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray made during his rallies as he "exposes" Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "double-speak" on NCP president Sharad Pawar or "false propaganda" about the state's first digital village of Harisal, is one of the defining statements in the Lok Sabha elections as they play out in Maharashtra. Raj, who has not fielded any candidate, has launched a surrogate campaign for the Congress-NCP.
In his rallies, which are inter-spread with audio-visual presentations, Raj calls on people to vote out Modi and BJP president Amit Shah. Though Raj does not specifically seek votes for the Congress-NCP, the drift is clear.
