MNS Chief Raj Thackeray also said that the North Indians who migrate to Mumbai should respect the local culture and language


Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray on Sunday was invited as a chief guest at an event organised by Uttar Bharatiya Mahapanchayat Sangh. While addressing the gathering, the MNS chief said that people who migrate from the North should question their state government regarding lack of development. 

People in large numbers migrate from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and Jharkhand. They should question their state government regarding the lack of economic development and employment,” MNS chief Raj Thackeray. 

While speaking in Hindi probably for the first time, Raj Thackeray said that Hindi is a beautiful language but forcing it to be a national language is not right. 

People who migrate from northern states and Bangladesh to Mumbai for their livelihood, I want these people to respect the local culture and language here,” Thackeray further said.

Speaking on the recent attacks on migrants from Bihar in Gujarat, the MNS chief said that whenever he takes a stand against North Indians, everyone criticises him. However, no one has questioned the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the state or Prime Minister Narendra Modi.  

Thackeray emphasised that he wants the poor states to prosper but instead of asking questions to their leaders, people rush to Mumbai. He further said that the Maharashtrians also do not have jobs but are educated.
