MNS chief Raj Thackery took on Owaisi brothers today and threw a gauntlet at them to face him in Maharashtra. “I will be in Mumbai or I am ready to come wherever you want me to come. If you have guts, come to my state and I will put a knife to your throat” he said apparently a retort to the firebrand MP’s recent remark that he would not chant Bharat Mata Ki Jai even if a knife is put on his throat. He lambasted the AIMIM leaders saying that they are financed by BJP.
Mimicking Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Raj said his insistence on raising ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ slogan is “misplaced”. “Nobody is going to remove you,” he said, referring to Fadnavis’ remarks that he is ready to quit as CM, but won’t stop saying the slogan.
