In a tweet, Thackeray said, "Hatred, endless lying and absolutely no qualms in transgressing the decorum of public life are the three characteristics that mark the term of Narendra Modi." "This stands intensified with his latest statements against the late Rajiv Gandhi and the nation will definitely not pardon it," he said.

The MNS chief had addressed a number of rallies across Maharashtra in the run-up to the Lok Sabha elections in the state, in which he lambasted Modi, BJP chief Amit Shah and the party-led Union government over its policies.
