Taking a potshot at Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, the Shiv Sena president said,' Fadnavis is also behaving as if he had created the state and taking credit for all the things that have happened even before he took over state's reins. Invoking late Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray’s relation with the Thane city, Mr Thackeray claimed that there was a bond between Thane and Shiv Sena which will not break at any cost and was confident that the citizens of the city would elect Shiv Sena to power in the civic polls.

'Maximum of the BJP Ministers were entangled in corruption charges,' he claimed.
