Mumbai, Feb 9 (UNI) Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray today said that the Marathi 'manoos' (people) are with his party and will always be with it.
Speaking at the Shiv Sena organised 'Kaamgaar Melawa' (workers rally), Uddhav, without naming Raj Thackeray or the attack on North Indians in the city, said that the recent development were an attempt to divide the Marathi-speaking people in the state.
''The recent attacks on North Indians in the city have been made to tarnish the image of the state and the Maharashtrians,'' he said.
Commenting on the actions of Raj Thackeray, Opposition leader in the State Assembly, Ramdas Kadam, who was also present in the rally, without naming him, said, ''Whatever action is applicable under the law of the land, will be applied against the person, whosoever he is.''
