Lashing out at the 'Congress yuvraj' in the latest the editorial in party mouthpiece Saamna, Thackeray said, "During his speech here, Rahul Gandhi repeatedly called Mumbai as Bombay. Those who want to break Mumbai away from Maharashtra call Mumbai as Bombay."
He went on to dub Gandhi's recent Mumbai's visit as the 'funeral procession of Congress' taken out by Marathi people.
Also launching an attack against the Minister of State for Home Ramesh Bagwe, for carrying Rahul Gandhi's shoes, Thackeray said, "The minister should be ashamed to stoop so low."
"Rahul Gandhi is not a Mahatma Gandhi so that his shoes should be held close to the heart," the party mouthpiece added.
