Mumbai, May 19: After questioning the Marathi community on Shiv Sena's defeat in the LS polls, Bal Thackeray now is all set to severe ties with nephew Raj Thackeray.
In the analysis of the poll results it was learnt that Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) had split the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Shiv Sena votes in the state. Referring to this Bal Thackeray in a statement said, "Anybody who is an enemy of the Marathis is my enemy."
Reacting to this development, MNS vice president V Saraswat said since it was an issue between an uncle and his nephew, no one had the right to comment on it. He further added that MNS was as concerned about the Marathis as anyone else in the state.
