Raj-Thackeray

MUMBAI: Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief  Raj Thackeray on Friday asked workers of the party’s students’ wing not to depend on social media to stay connected with the people.

With son Amit Thackeray in the audience, the MNS chief signaled a reshuffle in the organisation so as to make it more relevant on the youths’ issues. The meet was Amit’s first time at a closed door conclave of the Maharashtra Navnirman Vidyarthi Sena (MNVS).

Raj advised the workers not to get carried away by social media and urged

them not to follow Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s activism on social media.

“The social media is meant for expressing personal views. Modi’s activism on this platform is over the limit. The social media which was praising Modi till a few days ago is making fun of him now. You should go directly to the people and work for them,” the MNS chief said.

Raj denied that he had an immediate plan to launch his son Amit in active politics. He said: “My son is not a rocket to be launched. He will join politics at the right time.”

A source in the MNS said that Raj’s appeal to the workers to get in tune with the changing time is a preparatory ground for Amit’s launch in the near future.

“Many student leaders who are married will be shifted to main party soon and Amit will be roped in as their replacement,” he said.
