Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray on Wednesday said India should have no relations with Pakistan under any circumstances, and alleged that President Pervez Musharraf has the tacit support of US President George W Bush.

"Musharraf is a crook. He is the one who is creating problems and has the full support of Bush. Otherwise he would not dare do anything," said Thackeray.

Asked about peace overtures made by the former NDA regime, Thackeray said, "Yes, I know we were the first to do it but we made a mistake. I will say it again and again that there should be no relations with Pakistan ever."

To a query on what the government's role should be, he said, "Where is the government right now? There is no government, neither at the Centre or in the state."

Thackeray was answering questions in the backdrop of Sunday's blasts on the Samjhauta Express that claimed 68 lives.
