Raj Thackeray says no to campaign for BJP rivals in other poll-bound states
After Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray grabbed headlines for his attacks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah, BJP's rivals invited Thackeray to hold rallies in many poll-bound states beyond Maharashtra. However, Raj is unlikely to go out of state to campaign against the BJP in ensuing Lok Sabha polls.
Though he did not field any candidate, he had addressed 10 rallies across the state despite not openly campaigning for the Congress, NCP and their allies. Owing to his hard-hitting style and use of videos to substantiate claims, Raj received invitations from the Congress, Janata Dal (Secular), Haryana Vikas Party and a couple of community organisations in Delhi, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Karnataka to address rallies.
