MNS chief Raj Thackeray on Friday hit out at the state BJP chief Chandrakant Patil, questioning the latter's decision to contest from Kothrud instead of his native place Kohlapur.
Speaking at a public rally, Thackeray said, "Chandrakant Patil is basically from Kolhapur.
Why is he scared of contesting from Kolhapur and why is he contesting from Kothrud?"
the MNS chief said.
"In last 5 years 14,000 farmers have committed suicide in Maharashtra that means one farmer has committed suicide in every 3 hours," he added.
