Patna, Feb 13 (UNI) Union Steel and Fertiliser Minister and LJP chief Ramvilas Paswan today said the Central Government should intervene in Maharashtra to check the growing unrest there after ''unsavoury'' remarks by MNS chief Raj Thackeray against the Hindi-speaking people.

Addressing a function, organised here to mark the birth centenary celebration of great poet Ramdhari Singh Dinkar, Mr Paswan said in a federal structure like India, it was difficult for the Centre to intervene in Maharshtra as law and order situation was enlisted as state subject in the Constitution.

But despite the fact, the Centre should explore the ways to interfere in Maharashtra, he added.

'' None can imagine the existence of Mumbai without the Hindi- speaking people, '' Mr Paswan said adding he was the first to visit Mumbai when Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray had announced his party would prevent the entry of the Hindi-speaking people there a few years back.
