Mumbai: The Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra
Navnirman Sena (MNS) is peeved over Bihar Chief Minister
Nitish Kumar`s statement that no one can stop him from going
to Mumbai and take part in `Bihar Divas celebration`.
Asked for his comment on the MNS`s opposition to his
visit to the metropolis, Kumar said in Patna today that there
was no ban on visit, and he could go anywhere.
"Raj saheb will make the party`s stance on the issue
clear at a public meeting at Malegaon on April 12," a senior
MNS leader said, adding that Kumar`s statement had not gone
down well with the party.
"Mumbai is the capital of Maharashtra. If anybody tries
to show Maharashtra`s culture and Marathi language in a bad
light, it will not be tolerated," he said.
Though no one from MNS has formally announced so, recent
media reports said the party will not allow celebration of
Bihar Divas in Mumbai on April 15.
