JD(U) terms MNS-Narendra Modi bonhomie as opportunistic


Mumbai: Janata Dal United (JD-U) leader Sharad Yadav on Sunday assailed Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray’s decision to endorse Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi,as unprincipled and opportunistic.

“BJP is hell-bent on gaining power at the centre at any cost come what may, hence, they are forming such alliances with MNS, knowing extremely well that MNS and Shiv Sena both are antagonistic towards each other. The entire nation is watching this camaraderie.”

In a significant political move, MNS chief Raj Thackeray on Sunday announced candidates for the Lok Sabha polls and also declared his party’s support for BJP’s prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi.
