Addressing the crowd at the launch of MNS MLA Pravin Darekar’s book, Thackeray said, “People using the toilet will get embarrassed. They’ll think I’m looking at them.” When mid-day contacted Darekar, who commissioned the toilet, said that Thackeray’s picture would be removed at the earliest. “I’ll also pull down my photo from the banner. With the banner atop, the toilet feels more like an office.”
Expressing his views on the party supremo’s directive, an MNS worker from the area said the banner with photos of the both the leaders looked nice and had a positive effect on the workers. “We felt as if Raj saheb was watching us. Now that he wants us to remove it, we’ll do it immediately but with a heavy heart,” the worker said.
