JALNA: MNS chief Raj Thackeray today slammed all four major parties - Shiv Sena, BJP, NCP and Congress - saying they have become "arrogant" and asked people to teach them a lesson in the October 15 polls.            

These political parties have become "arrogant" over the years and their leaders show no compunction in changing their loyalties, he said, addressing an election rally in support of the local MNS candidate at Tirathpuri village near here in North Maharashtra.

He lambasted NCP leader Ajit Pawar for his "urination" remarks made at a public meeting in a village in Pune district in April last year. Ajit, then the Deputy Chief Minister, had apologised for the controversial remarks made in the context of water shortage in parts of Maharashtra.     

"How can the people tolerate such leaders,"? he asked.        

Such leaders should be asked what they had done for the people, the MNS chief said and called upon the voters to keep the four parties away from power to safeguard interest of the State.    

Raj said water scarcity is a major problem in Marathwada region, where crores of rupees have been embezzled by officials and politicians in the name of solving the issue.
