Thackeray directed his party workers to observe "yuti dharma" and "mahayutidharma" and break the previous record of voting and remove "gundgiri" from Vasai-Virar.

He said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Shiv Sena and other alliance partners were participated in election campaigning wholeheartedly, adding that unprecedented crowds were seen in the Kolhapur rally held earlier.

Slamming the Congress party's manifesto, Thackeray said before coming up with a manifesto, the Congress should first talk about what it did when it was in power.

"I have not read the manifesto of the Congress party. I wonder what issues they might have taken up in the manifesto," he added.
