Mumbai: While making acerbic comments on the orders of a Bihar court to attach his properties, Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray stated in the party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ that lakhs of Shiv Sainiks are his real property, if possible, seize them.

The attachment order was issued following successive failure of the Sena supremo to appear before the court to explain his position on several occasions earlier.

“My real wealth is the lakhs of Shiv Sainiks and the Marathi masses who immediately respond to my call to jump into battlefield. They are my heritage and property. Can anyone attach this property? Such a law and court is yet to be made," Thackeray said.

The Executive Editor of Saamana and Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Raut also ridiculed the court orders. “The decision of court to seize the property of Thackeray is the biggest joke of the century,” he said.

“Thackeray has always respected the court, but an order to attach his assets is ridiculous, because his property is millions of Shiv Sainiks,” he added.

Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate of Aara, S B M Tripathy, on June 27 ordered to issue a warrant for attaching properties of Thackeray.
