Mumbai: After claiming victory for driving out Pakistani artist’s from the country, MNS has now trained its gun at Pak panelists on NewsHour Debate.

In a letter sent to Times Now, the party has warned Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami to desist from inviting panelists from across the border for any kind of debate.

Speaking to Faking News MNS spokesperson said, “Yes, we have asked the channel to stop airing views of Pakistani panelists. I mean these panelists are treated like 2Rs people in their own country. No one listens to them in Pakistan, then why should we give them screen space on our channel to rant against India.”

When questioned about what steps MNS would take in case Arnab ignores the party’s warning, he said, “Usually we deal with such situation in our style. But for Arnab, we will hit where it hurts the most. Our volunteers will organize ‘Mass VVIP Racism’ where they will break traffic rules and get involved in other VVIP activities, to put our point across.”

Party insiders however feel that they should tread cautiously with many expressing that by issuing the statement MNS has crossed path with the ‘wrong guy’.

“Arnab is a tough nut to crack. Honestly speaking we shouldn’t have raised this issue in the first place. As it is our party is not doing well and one wrong step would mean the end of road for us, said a party worker who didn’t wish to be named.

Our repeated emails to Times Now on this issue were not replied to. However, sources from the News Channel say that the fiery news channel is less likely to relent.
