Spewing venom against the Indian Muslims and questioning loyalty of the Muslims in Malegaon and Bhiwandi, Raj Thackeray - the communal leader of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) Thursday  »

Malegaon: Continuing his tirade against the North Indians, Raj Thackeray - the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) leader known for the communal and divisive politics, on Thursday challenged Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to celebrate 'Bihar Divas' in Mumbai.


"If you have guts dare come to Mumbai and celebrate Bihar Divas", Raj Thackeray said while addressing an election rally in Malegaon on Thursday.


Stating that Nitish Kumar unnecessarily provoked him even when he had not said anything about the celebrations going on in Bihar to commemorate hundred years of its establishment.


"Nitish provoked me by stating that he did not need permission from anyone to celebrate Bihar Divas in Mumbai. I had not said anything earlier. But I challenge him now to celebrate Bihar Divas in Mumbai", he said in the rally organised ahead of the Malegaon Municipal Corporation elections scheduled for April 15.


He said that people from North India have become a major problem for Maharashtra and its people. "It is them who are using resources of the state and creating problems for the people", he said.


He also said that people from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar who are staying in a large number in Maharashtra are voting in both the states. "I saw this in the recently held elections in Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh. These people went to Uttar Pradesh and voted in assembly elections. Then came back to Mumbai and voted again in civic elections", he said.


"They have the right to vote twice. But people from Maharashtra have the right to vote only once", he said.


Stating that people form North India are using 'money' to increase their representations in the Maharashtra Legislative Council, he singled out Maharashtra State Samajwadi Party (SP) president and MLA Abu Asim Azmi for criticism.


"You know who this Abu Asim Azmi is. At a time when people are afraid of contesting elections from one place, he wins from Mumbai and Bhiwandi both the places. He does not win elections with the help of Marathi votes. His supporters are people from North India", he said.
