Sachin's nomination 'dirtiest play' of Cong: Thackeray

April 29, 2012 16:14 IST

"It is Congress's dirtiest play...the real dirty picture is this", Thackeray said talking to reporters after he was conferred with a lifetime achievement award by Raipur-based magazine `Cartoon Watch' at a function in Mumbai.

Asked how would he draw Sachin's cartoon, Thackeray, who ran a cartoon magazine before founding Shiv Sena, said that insome cases "a mere photograph is enough" and there is no need to draw a cartoon.

On Saturday, in the editorial in Sena mouthpiece Saamana, Thackeray had said that Congress must have an ulterior motive in nominating Sachin to the upper house of Parliament.

"Crores of Sachin's fans would have liked to call him `Bharat Ratna Sachin Tendulkar'. Alas, he would now only be Sachin Tendulkar, MP", the editorial said.
