Lucknow, Mar 10: BJP MP from Gorakhpur and founder of Hindu Yuva Vahini Yogi Adityanath today held the Congress responsible for the rise of anti-north Indian agitation by the Raj Thackarey led Maharastra Navnirman Sena (MNS).
Talking to mediapersons here, Yogi Adityanath said the Congress was responsible to provoke the MNS to create such a situation in Maharashtra like ULFA had done in Assam. Condemning the violence acts against the north Indians in Mumbai, he said it was the conspiracy of the Congress to create disturbances to fulfil their own political goals.
''In Assam, over 400 Hindi speaking people were killed by the ULFA militants and the Congress did not ever show any concern on the situation,'' Mr Adityanath further alleged.
Demanding FIRs against Raj Thackarey and his party leaders for their 'anti-national' act, Mr Adityanath was, however, turned soft on Bala saheb Thackarey and refused to comment on his articles.
