Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi would lose the Shiv Sena's support if he pressed for the relaxation of visa procedures for Pakistanis wanting to visit the Ajmer dargah in Rajasthan, party chief Bal Thackeray said Thursday.


“If he (Modi) errs, we shall not support him. I will not allow my country and Hindutva to be sullied by this,” Thackeray said, referring to the Bharatiya Janata Party leader's demand.


Thackeray’s comments were published Thursday in the final instalment of a three-part marathon interview in the Hindi newspaper Dopahar ka Saamna.
