    Taking the saffron bandwagon and Hindutva ideology ahead, the Maharashtra Navanirman Sena (MNS) launched its new flag, which is saffron in colour with the Shivmudra in the centre, at a conclave organised by party chief Raj Thackeray on Thursday. Apart from the event being a re-launch of sorts for the party, it also turned into a launch pad for Raj's son Amit as an MNS leader.
