After Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath announced that other states will have to get permission to hire workers, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray retorted saying that the workers and labourers from other states will have to seek consent from the Maharastra government if they wish to work here. 

The Maharashtra government needs to take such things seriously, Thackeray said while stating that the migrant workers coming to work here would require the nod of the police and the state government. 

“Any worker coming here to work should get duly registered with the Maharashtra government and the local police as well. The workers coming here should submit their documents and photographs too,” the MNS chief said. 

Earlier on Sunday, during a webinar, Yogi Adityanath said that other states will have to seek permission to hire workers from UP as some states had treated them badly. The claim made by the UP CM that the migrants were “ill-treated” didn’t go well with leaders in Maharashtra. 

Raj Thackeray, the cousin of Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, said that if the Uttar Pradesh government is emphasising on seeking permission to employ UP residents, they will have to take the permission of Maharashtra government to work here. 

The government needs to undertake such an exercise diligently, Raj Thackeray said while reacting to Yogi Adityanath’s claims. 

On Sunday, Adityanath asked officials to set up a migrant commission which would work on skill mapping and employment of migrant workers but will also fix their wages and come up with social security schemes including insurance for the workers. 

Meanwhile, on Monday, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut also hit out at Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath over his claim that the migrant workers and labourers were “ill-treated” in Maharashtra. 

“Yogi Adityanath has said that migrants were treated poorly. We will send him video clips of migrant workers hailing Uddhav Thackeray while leaving for their homes,” the Shiv Sena MP said.
