New Delhi: Raj Thackeray, the chief of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena said that Congress president Rahul Gandhi who was referred as "Pappu" by his opponents has now become "Param Pujya" (most revered). Mr Thackeray was referring to Congress' victory in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh Assembly elections a year after Mr Gandhi took over the party as its President. In the state of Madhya Pradesh, the party is likely to form government with the support from regional parties and Independents.

"Rahul Gandhi was alone in Gujarat, even in Karnataka and now too. Now Pappu has become Param Pujya. Will his leadership be accepted at the national level, you are seeing it," he said.

The chief of MNS also took a swipe at the BJP and said the party was bound to be defeated because of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party president Amit Shah's behaviour.

He added, "It was bound to happen... .The way Amit Shah and Modi ji behaved in the past four years. It is all clear to the people of India now... they failed in all fronts and they have nothing to show... so they are playing Ram Mandir card but people are smart enough."
