New Delhi, Feb 1 (UNI) The Congress today demanded a public apology from Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray for making a statement that he would not allow the celebration of 'chhat parva' in Maharashtra.

Mr Thackeray's remark was ''condemnable'' and he should apologise for that, AICC spokesman Shakeel Ahmed told reporters.
