Addressing a rally at Amravati on Sunday, March 24, MNS supremo asked the voters to "try the Raj Thackeray option".
"This Raj Thackeray is standing before you as an option. When polls come, don't get confused. Else, nobody would be able to save you," he said to end his speech.
"There are no elections now, yet I appeal to you all to support the MNS. Together we can bring about a change in the state," Thackeray added.
Raj ended his 10-day-long tour of Vidarbha on Sunday.
Raj renewed his attack on the ruling Congress-Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) alliance. He accused the government of indulging in large-scale corruption, unemployment among indigenous Marathi people, cow-slaughter and tiger poaching.
"Five of the key ministries are handled by the NCP: finance, power, irrigation, water and home. What have they done so far," Thackeray said.
"Ajit Pawar, will you explain where the Rs.70,000 crore has gone," Thackeray demanded from the NCP's deputy chief minister.
He also took a dig at Chief Minister of Maharashtra Prithviraj Chavan.
"This man was chosen by Sonia Gandhi. And he gives interviews expressing helplessness about everything and citing coalition compulsions. Nothing makes a difference to the thick-skinned," he said.
Raj pitched for five-star hotels in Vidarbha's tiger areas. "Those who now show tigers to poachers will show them to tourists. I have told Ratan Tata to start a Taj resort in Tadoba."
