Patna: Raj Thackeray`s MNS support to
Congress in the Maharashtra legislative council polls has
come in handy for the BJP to target the ruling party as
anti-north Indian ahead of the Bihar assembly polls.

"We were always saying that the Congress and NCP are
in hand-in-glove with the MNS and that has been proved beyond
doubt by the development in Maharashtra," party spokesman
Prakash Javdekar said.

He alleged that the MNS was resorting to its agitation
"under the supervision of police".

"We have always spoken of this nexus between the MNS
on the one hand and the Congress-NCP on the other," he said.
The MNS action has come ahead of the BJP`s national
executive meeting beginning here from tomorrow which will
finetune the strategy for the assembly polls in Bihar
scheduled by the year-end.

Raj Thackeray is a hate figure in Bihar after attacks
on north Indians allegedly by MNS workers.
The Nitish Kumar-led JD(U) had also capitalised on the
issue in the Lok Sabha polls last year.

All the JD(U) members in the Lok Sabha had resigned on
the issue shortly before the last general elections.
