"We pay our heartfelt homage to Balasaheb Thackeray. The sea of the people along with his deceased body in Mumbai shows the respect and love of the people he had earned," he added.

Bal Thackeray, who was critically ill for the past few days, passed away at his residence 'Matoshree' in suburban Bandra yesterday.
