Haji Arafat while announcing his decision to quit the party said that Raj Thackeray has lost his mental balance.

"One day he says he will contest the election, and the other day he backtracks. I think he has lost his mental balance", he said while talking to media.

He said how can he change the fate of Maharashtra when he cannot take such a small decision.

"I just fail to understand how fast this man is changing his mind. It seems to me that he has lost his mental balance", he reiterated.

Arafat also alleged that the Muslim party workers are being ignored and sidelined in the party.

"I had joined the MNS to serve my community and the nation. But, Muslims are deliberately sidelined in the party. They are being ignored", he alleged.

Raj Thackeray had two days back backtracked from his decision to contest the Maharashtra assembly election to be held in October this year.
