Vadodara, Feb 8 (UNI) Senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj today condemned the tirade of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray against North indians, that led to violence in Mumbai and other parts of the state.
Describing Raj Thackeray's remarks as 'unconstitutional', Ms Swaraj said people who believe in the Indian constitution would never accept such a 'divisive' stance.
Talking to reporters on the sidelines of a 'Gramin Vasant Utsav' here, the BJP leader also expressed serious concern over the Patan student's gangrape incident, which has rocked Gujarat.
''This is most unfortunate. However, the state government and police administration have taken all possible steps and nabbed all the teachers of the college, allegedly involved in the rape,'' she said.
On the forthcoming Karnataka Assembly elections, Ms Swaraj said the state should go to polls before May 28 and her party would foil attempts by the Congress party to defer the elections.
