"I strongly condemn the incident. There should be an inquiry into the attack. There should be strong action against that party...MNS should be banned," the Minister told reporters.
His comments came as a response to the attack on 13 railway board examination centres in suburban Mumbai by MNS activists who protested "inadequate representation" to locals and chased away candidates from north India.
Prasad said the directions of the Supreme Court or any other courts did not have any impact on the MNS leader. "We can see such incidents when the elections are near," he said.
The Minister said he had spoken to Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh who assured him of a proper inquiry into the incident.

Raj thackeray should be given severe penalty under the charge of murder of an innocent bihari boy. He should be made to provide compensation to the boys immediate family. I totally agree with lalu ... Raj needs to be treated for mental illness first because his disease seems to be contagious .. He is taking Maharashtra nowhere near prosperity .. the mayhem that his men create is earning a bad name for the state as well as the country. How many investors do you think will be willing to invest in maharashtra after what drama these jerks have displayed. All the big companies want their employees to be safe. No one wants to work in a war torn terrorised state. You want jobs for ppl .. you want prosperity ... and you create an envioronment where ppl cant work without the fear of being killed. This dosent make sense.
All I want to say is Raj Thackeray is no good to India anymore and his actions are total proof of it. In my opinion, to avoid future trouble to all of us, he should be executed or just be killed in police encounter. India doesn't need people like Raj Thackeray.
Yes Mr. Laloo is right. He is mental case. He should understant that in Mumbai there are not only North Indians. The peoples in Mumbai are from accross the country. Even from Nepal, Tibbet and Bangladesh also. why is not against the people outside country.Today Mumbai is an Economic Capital.He should understand that this is not just because of Marathi people. This is due to efforts of all people living in Mumbai.The Advertisement for Rly board exams was in Employment new and not only in UP
Laloo's utterances must be taken with pinch of salt. Most of the times, he succeeds in concealing his stupidity with guffaws. His lack of education and close association with the buffalos, highlight the fact that he is 'Malvolio' outside the Globe. He would be unable to spell “ Constitution” in the Roman script or “Samwidhan” in the Devanagari; but this does not stop him from using that word, every time he opens his trap. Who will make him understand that indirectly he is accusing, not just Raj but the entire tribe of Maharashtrians behind him. His political advisors and senior civil servants should brief him that the Constitution does not allow him to shift the entire states of Bihar and U P on the banks of Krishna, Koyna.Godawari, Indrayani and the beaches of the Arabian Sea. We should be thankful to Raj Thackeray for trying to save the Constitution before the likes of Lalus Mulayams, Paswans and Amarsinghs destroy the sanctity of the Constitution and India with it
You should have avoided this by having centres ouside Mumbai. Do not throw oil on fire.Time is a great factor to heal up. Recently West Bengal says to write Gorkhaland ...what can you do.
Maharashtra (including Mumbai) should be a separate NATION. Like European Union, Gulf
why maharashtra should be a seperate nation. it is our's. tommorow if tamilian said they want tamil as seperate state, when kashmir is already demanding that. will you seperate all of them. then where will be the place for an india. the best way to handle such kind of dirty mascarents like raj..is to throw him out of country.
When there are more than 200 countries in the world, what is wrong if one more nation, like Maharashtra Nation is born. In the past Nepal, Sri Lanka, Burma, pakistan were also part of India. And now, they are separate nation. Remaining India is carrying on. If Maharashtra separates as a nation, remaining India can do without it. There are so many brilliant people in UP and Bihar, who can help the prosperity of remaining India. As a nation, Maharashtra can equal Germany Japan, France and England. With a population of 12, crores, and with A grade port and all the resources, it will be a powerful force to recken with. At present it is being ruined by hordes of people from UP and Bihar. It will require Maharashtrian Army to prevent these people from capturing Maharashtra. There is no other remedy to this problem. Before it is completely ruined, it is better to carve out a new, vibrant Maharashtra Nation. No need to change the name. It is already "Maharashtra" i.e. A GREAT NATION.
Being a political pary expecting good behaviour. No one is disturbing any marathi people outside maharatra they are also applying jobs in different places. If every state behave like this then it is not need to call we are people from same country. We call all indians are BHAI BHAI, we got freedom due to unity not due to Mera area mere galli
Raj Thackery is surely an insane person and he is out of his mind. We are secular state and our constitution enable us to go any where in this country and compete any where .Raj is only interestd to build up hsi Marathi vote banke, but what has went wrong to law and order situation in Maharashtra or all of them have join hands ..
Railway board officers needs to be blamed for favouring UP and Bihari.Is there are no talent left in Maharashtra so that those people needs to travel and come here for such exams. Lalu needs to investigate this process before blaming others. Such things only makes MNS to to take charge of situation.
Laloo Prasad came to power and retain the power in and lead Bihar state as one of the most lawless, poor, and ruthless state. He is in the government why not do some thing about it?
If Raj Thackrey has to be banned, then why not Mamta B? It's a fact which is known to everyone that 90% employees in Railway are from UP? What's so special about them, r people from other regions not eligible for Railway Jobs?? I seriously feel Lalooo should think about this first before making such statements on others.
ONE TENDS TO FORGET WHY ONE HAS TO TRAVEL TO MAHARASHTRA FOR RAILWAY EXAMS. THE VERY SYSTEM OF QUOTAS AND FURTHER EXAMS FOR THE PERSONS OF THAT STATE IS BEING DEFEATED. THE RAILWAY MINISTRY SHOULD LOOK INTO A FRESH IN THE WHOLE PROCESS OF RECRUITMENT RATHER THAN BLAMING OTHERS. IF AT ALL ANY ONE NEEDS ANY TESTING IT IS THE RAILWAY MINISTER WHO HAS SO LOPSIDED VIEWS IN ALL RESPECTS. THE WHOLE SYSTEM DEVISED IS WRONG AND ON TOP OF IT HE TRIES TO BLAME OTHERS.
Lalu deliberately did not advertise the Recruitment / Exams in Maharashtra, this BIAS of Lalu has got the wrath of MNS. Im sure the ENGLISH MEDIA will never show the TRUTH. FACTS: 95% of the candidates who appeared for the exam are from UP
Mr Laloo Prasad Yadav is 100% correct in calling Raj Thackery a mental these type of anti social elements should be banned Raj Thackery is an idiotic good for nothing fellow and some people for money are supporting him and doing things for him .He is a curse for Maharasthra and India . The people of the state should teach him a lesson .
Atleast there is someone who has shown whatever Lalu says is not bullshit. Raj has made us to belive that Lalu is not insane.
raj is great , for maharashtra
raj thackeray....is nothing but a big asshole hu dusnt kno d meaning of unity.....india is a democracy and it guarantees d right 2 settle or reside in any part of the cuntry irrespective of cast , color , region etc....dis man is out of his mind and should be executed in public..and idiots like u should know what dis man has done.....
Railways should shift the examination centers out off Maharastra and then Raj Thackeray will realise what problems a candidates have to face when they have to go to some other state for exam and when they have to face such consequences. Railways or any perticular "North Indian" have never said that Marathis should not participate in railway exams. Thos who are eligible should participate, if they are Maharastra or any other state.
Throw that garbage out of country. He is a shame for the entire nation. He should be banned. Why does media give footage to such kacharas of society. Let them bark. dont pay importance to them. The apex court should step into this matter. It has become a routine now. What is the Maharashtra Govt doing? They are useless. Its all about troubling the common man and enjoying seeing them suffering. They are all same. Superme court should issue order against such garbages of society and keep them locked in the ban.
Laloo appears to have turned into Doctor. I agree with him that RajT is a mental case but Laloo is also no less. He is making mockery of his ministry by allowing only UP/Bihar youth in Railway recruitments. MAharshtra is not of Raj's father and RAilway is not Laloo prasad's father. Similarly Bengal is not of Mamata's father, UP is not of Mayawati's father.
CBI TO TAKE ACTION.
I hold no brief to Raj Thackrey. For no fault of students they get bashed. But the question to be asked is why the Railway's advertise only Bihir
In order to clean his side of the story, Railway ministry should come out with a white paper listing no. of advertisements for jobs published in various news papers in last 5 years.
I oppose the attack on unemployed youth by MNS. At the same the Rlys are filled with Biharis in many jobs due to continuous occupation of Rly ministry by Biharis. Lalu should have done some thing to develop his state in the 20 years of office he held.
IS MAHARASHTRA IN FOOT-STEP OF WEST BENGAL????THROW OUT RAJ THAKREY N HIS FAMILY OUT OF MAHARASHTRA OR PUT THEM BEHINF BARS.
Really he is a mental person like a mad Ox. for this kind of person there should be no place in society, no mental hospital can treat his mental ilness. Thakrey's type of persons are a abuse on society because they can sell there mother for their profit. this of leaders are doing a bad politics on cast and religion. why he is showing this type of behavior i don't know but the situation of raj thakrey is same as the terrorist but he should not forget that he is also from NI and NI is serving so many maharashtrians from a long time and now maharashtra is serving the same why he has problem?"ye desh hamara hai aur koi bhi hame maharashtra main kam karne se nahi rok sakta"
