On his 43rd birthday on Monday, MNS chief Raj Thackeray got a gift he could have done without -- the nephew was christened 'Dhanajirao' by uncle and Shiv Sena chief Raj Thackeray.   

Dhanajirao is an euphemism for one who is wealthy or hankers after money.  

The title is the latest in a series of such nicknames given by the 83-year-old Sena chief in his over four decade-old political career.   

Thackeray has earlier called NCP chief Sharad Pawar "maidyache pote" (sack of flour), a reference to the Maratha strongman's girth.   

The Sena chief later famously termed Chhagan Bhujbal, who quit his party to join Congress in the 90s, as 'Lakhoba', and Narayan Rane, who quit Sena in 2005 to join Congress, as 'Naroba'.   

"Now that Dhanajirao (Raj) has confessed MNS MLAs voted for Congress in last week's Legislative Council elections in return for revoking suspension of four MNS MLAs, everybody knows how transparent the poll process was," Thackeray said.

After the Council poll, Thackeray had alleged that MNS was bought over by Congress. PTI
