Days after he revealed how fugitive gangster Dawood Ibrahim is negotiating for a comeback to India, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) president Raj Thackeray spoke about the current criticism against the Central government of silencing the voice of dissent. He wondered: “By showing such support to trolls that are responsible in silencing these little voices of dissent, aren’t we heading to a state of anarchy?”
In a scathing attack on the PM, the MNS chief also claimed that the Bharatiya Janata Party government came to power in 2014 by making false promises and by distorting the truth. “Winning the 2014 election became an obsession where in all principles and ethics were relinquished. False promises were made, truth was distorted, and to ignite the public sentiments, unscrupulous and deceitful means were employed,” he claimed.
