Tirade against north Indians continues
Mumbai, ians:

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray, whose comments ridiculing north Indians settled in Maharashtra led to violence and also his arrest, has continued his tirade — this time in a media interview.

In his interview to Marathi weekly magazine Lok Prabha of the Indian Express group, the MNS chief is quoted as saying: “It is the cultural hegemony which some north Indians want to impose on Maharashtrians that I oppose.We will go with folded hands and ask them to leave. If they refuse, then we will raise our hands,” he said.

Thackeray also lambasted many Hindi television news channels, saying: ”I barred them from entering my press conference (last week) because while on one hand they branded me a hoodlum (goonda), they refrained from using any kind of expletives for north Indian leaders like Amar Singh.”

Asked to comment on migrants' contribution towards developing Mumbai, Thackeray said, ”Mumbai's development is more due to Parsis, Gujaratis, Marwaris and to some extent Punjabis.
“But look at the people who come from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar: they enter the city with nothing.”
