Launching a scathing attack in an editorial on Friday in the party mouthpiece, Uddhav said, “Even item girl Rakhi Sawant can govern better than Kejriwal. If this is the culture of the Aam Aadmi Party and if this is the kind of anarchy they want to spread, then one has to accept that there is an anti-national force behind this.”

Uddhav said that over the years, Indian politics has witnessed several ‘jokers’; starting with Raj Narain, later the antics of Lalu Prasad Yadav, and many others."

"However, all of them are left way behind by this mob of mad people, led by Arvind Kejriwal, who have stormed the country's political scene," Thackeray, also the publication's editor, wrote.

"The antics of AAP and its leaders, including Kejriwal, have shamed every person calling themselves politicians," he added.

He said that Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti carried out illegal raids in the city and gave unauthorised orders to the police which started the entire fracas in the national capital earlier this week.

Later, Kejriwal staged a dharna which created huge public inconveniences in Delhi; "With such antics, Kejriwal wants to spread chaos around the country; It seems that there could be the involvement of some disruptive forces behind the agitation," he said.

Coming out in defence of Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde, Uddhav Thackeray said, "As Home Minister, he has not been given licence to spread chaos or speak nonsense against anybody."

Mentioning the insulting remarks against nurses by AAP leader Kumar Vishwas, Uddhav said that his (Vishwas') recent jokes on women backfired and he was forced to apologize.

He referred to how die-hard AAP supporters like author Chetan Bhagat are also feeling disheartened due to Kejriwal's dramatic tactics. The Shiv Sena leader said, "To many, it appears that this mob of mad-caps has now become the enemy of the 'aam aadmi' (common man).”

"Shinde called (Kejriwal) mad, Bhagat says AAP is like an item girl seeking attention in politics, NCP called AAP a snake. This mob of mad people, led by the monkey-minder ('Madari') Kejriwal will not last long," Uddhav said.
