Mumbai, Mar 3 (UNI) The Republican Party of India (G) National Secretary Dr Rajendra Gavai, son of Bihar Governor R S Gavai, today came down heavily on the political leaders for making provocative speeches against a certain community.
Dr Gavai said the Indian Constitution does not address people as North Indian, Bihari, South Indian and Maharashtrian. ''We all are Indians and we have to work together for the development of the country,'' he added.
He urged Samajwadi Party leader Abu Asim Azmi and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray to sort out the matter and help in maintaining peace and harmony in the country.
The RPI leader said, ''On the occasion of the 117th birth anniversary of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar on April 14, we have decided to spread the message of brotherhood, peace and harmony for the betterment of society.'' On being asked about the reaction of Biharis against his father, he said he did not consider it as the reaction of Biharis, but the reaction of two MLAs, who were seeking publicity.
Notably, the MNS activists had allegedly attacked migrant North Indians in the city and across the state in February following provocative speech made by its chief.
Thereafter, some people had staged a ''dharna'' outside the Bihar Governor's house demanding that he go back to Maharashtra.
UNI ST NM SB HS1913 said 'Hum pahale Bharatiya Hai aur phir prantiya' (first we are Indian and then ) will spread message of brotherhool, peace and harmony and integraty of the asssd country
