MNS chief Raj Thackeray calls PM Modi's press conference 'maun ki baat'

During 2019 LS elections in Maharashtra, MNS chief Raj Thackeray had launched an aggressive campaign against Modi-Shah duo across the state


Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday joined Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah in a press conference at the party’s headquarters in New Delhi. However, PM Modi failed to take any questions during the presser. 

Reacting to this, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray took a jibe at PM Modi saying that this press conference was “Maun ki baat”. 

Our Prime Minister is scared to face the media. You (Modi) didn’t allow many journalists to attend your press conference. Modi came but Amit Shah was taking questions. Why did Modi even come?” said Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray. 

While referring to Shah and Modi, Thackeray said that they both have done nothing in the last five years. They have just bullied people, the MNS chief asserted.
