Was first to say Modi deserved to be PM: Thackeray
Thackeray said, "I had believed in Modi and was first to say he should be the Prime Minister of India." Impressed with the development in Gujarat, Thackeray said Modi deserved to be India's Prime Minister in 2011 when the latter was Gujarat's Chief Minister.
Centre organizing events to divert public attention
Calling the Centre's demonetization drive a failure, Thackeray said the government's claims of assault on black money were misleading as 99% of the scrapped notes have returned to banks. He said Centre is good at organizing different events to divert public attention. He added: "First it was Yoga, then Swatch Bharat Abhiyaan, and now football. Now they will come up with another concept."
Modi showed no results: Raj Thackeray
Thackeray remarked: "I thought he (Modi) would steer India to progress but in the last three-and-half (years), he showed no results. What is difference between the Congress and BJP government except for the fact that this government has just changed the color of the currency?"
