Leave or be thrown out MNS style: Posters threatening Bangladeshis emerge

After Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray revealed his party’s new saffron flag bearing the ‘rajmudra’ (royal seal) used during Shivaji’s times and defending the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC), posters threatening Bangladeshis in Raigad district’s Panvel area have emerged, reported News 18.

 

 

At a public meeting last month, Raj Thackeray had announced that his party would hold a rally on February 9 to drive 'illegal infiltrators' from Pakistan and Bangladesh, out of India. He had said, “There can be a debate on the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) but why should we shelter someone who has come from outside illegally?"

He had also said that India wasn’t a dharamshala (inn) and hadn’t taken the contract of humanity.

Moving from the earlier flag that consisted of saffron, green and blue stripes, representative of Hindus, Muslims and Dalits; he unveiled a new party flag last month taunting estranged cousin Uddhav Thackeray, the CM of Maharashtra saying, “I don’t change the colour of my party to form the government.”

Raj Thackeray has gone from Modi supporter to categorically anti-BJP to Modi supporter again. After supporting PM Modi during the 2013 – 14 elections, Thackeray turned to be the voice of the Opposition against Modi in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, where he fact-checked BJP leaders' claims and speeches.https://ssl.gstatic.com/ui/v1/icons/mail/images/cleardot.gif

With his recent admission that it is necessary to give a reply to the protest marches taken out by Muslims all over the country and his question over Muslim clerics who go to other countries where even the police aren’t allowed, he is positioning himself as an ally of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) after its alliance with the Shiv Sena went sour last year.
