In a veiled sweep against MNS chief Raj Thackeray over Hindutva, Maharashtra’s chief Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday drew parallels between his alienated cousin and the main character from the Bollywood film “Lage Raho Munna Bhai”, saying that a real Munnabhai here feels like Bal Thackeray and wears a shawl. Uddhav, who leads Shiv Sena, spoke at a public meeting at the BKC field in Mumbai and referred to the character Sanjay Dutt’s character in “Lage Raho Munna Bhai” who is beginning to see the spirit in Mahatma Gandhi.

“The Munnabhai thinks he’s interacting with Mahatma Gandhi but the end of the movie reveals that it’s a case of chemical ‘locha’ (mess) … there are several Munnabhais roaming around.

“We have a similar case. A Munnabhai here thinks of himself as Balasaheb (Shiv Sena’s founder Bal Thackeray) and wears a shawl,” said Uddhav without taking the name Raj Thackeray. Recently, Raj Thackeray had donned a saffron shawl when he performed ‘maha aarti’ by Lord Hanuman on the occasion of Hanuman Jayanti.

MNS activists began describing Raj Thackeray as “Hindujannayak” (leader of the Hindu people) after he demanded the removal of loudspeakers from mosques and asked party cadres to play Hanuman Chalisa at a higher volume. He had also fought for a unified civil law and law to control population growth. The late Bal Thackeray is often hailed as “Hinduhridayamrat” (Emperor of Hindu hearts). The prime minister said two million people had lost their jobs from 2017 to 2022. “All political parties should consider this fact,” he added.
