MNS chief Raj Thakeray also took his anger out at Markaz people. Thackeray said, “Why are we treating them, they should shot down.” “If they think that their religion is bigger than the country and want to engage in some conspiracy…they are spitting at people, on vegetables, roaming nude before the nurses,” he said.
