Lad's poster bears Modi's photo at one corner where is shown in a way that seems he is blessing Modi on his decision. A line on the poster states 'Kalya Paishacha Khatma, hech Achche Din' (End of black money means good days have arrived).

Sena's poster meanwhile also uses Bal Thackeray's photo with the lines 'Prime Minister Modincha Kewilwana Akrosh (PM Modi's appealing howl), 'Shewati pramukhanchi athwan Zalich' (finally he has been reminded of Bal Thackeray) scribbled below.

Recently, while Sena MPs had met Modi to submit a Memorandum that sought to allow DCC banks to allow exchange of old notes, Modi reportedly told them that had been alive, he would have blessed him.

Meanwhile, has taken a harsh stand over the chaos among people who are standing in long queues to withdraw cash from banks and ATMs.

He has threatened the that he would not shy from taking an extreme step if Modi ignores common people's difficulties after the withdrawal of higher denomination of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000.

Police officials later removed both the posters.

Polls to the Municipal Corporation of Greater are scheduled to take place next year.

On November 8, Prime Minister Modi had announced his government's decision to demonetise Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 notes.
