Centre tells Maharashtra CM to rein in Shiv Sena

The Centre on Sunday asked the Maharashtra government to take strong action against groups responsible for the recent happenings in Mumbai.



New Delhi: The Centre on Sunday asked the
Maharashtra government to take strong action against groups
responsible for the recent happenings in Mumbai, a veiled
reference to Shiv Sena and MNS in the wake of their campaign
against migrants and Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan.

Interjecting Chief Minister Ashok Chavan while he was
addressing the conference of Chief Ministers on internal
security here, Chidambaram said the whole nation wants strong
action to be taken against people responsible for recent
happenings in Maharashtra, particularly in Mumbai.

Shiv Sena and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) have taken
a stand that Mumbai belongs to Marathi people only and people
born and brought up in the state have first right over it.

Shiv Sena had also labelled Shah Rukh Khan as
"traitor" for his comments that Pakistani players should have
been included in IPL matches. Its activists tore down
posters of the star`s forthcoming film ‘My Name is Khan’.

Chidambaram intervened when Chavan was referring to the
need for strengthening of law.
