Nagpur, Feb 25 (UNI) Bihar Governor R S Gavai today said he did not support the campaign against north Indians, launched by the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) in Mumbai and other parts of the state.
Speaking to reporters here, Mr Gavai said it was wrong to create a divide in society on the basis of caste, creed, religion or language.
''I do not support such division myself. India belongs to everybody,'' he said, adding ''Mumbai is mini India. Everybody has the right to come and stay there. Anybody can come there.'' Commenting on the alleged misbehaviour by some members of the House during his address to the Bihar Legislative Assembly last week, Mr Gavai said it was just a little sloganeering by three members and not any ''systematic or sustained'' campaigning.
Nobody, including the leaders of the Republican Party of India, should try to derive political mileage out of the incident, the Governor said, and warned that he would not tolerate any such attempt.
The incident of sloganeering had been forgotten and the Leader of the Opposition and Leader of the Ruling Party in the House had condemned it, he added.
