Thane, May 10 (UNI) Asserting that language was the only proof of existence, MNS Chief Raj Thackeray today asked the people of the state to stick to the use of Marathi even as he again urged them to be ready to check ''infiltration'' from ousiders, especially North Indians, into Maharashtra.
''Language is the only proof of existence. One should be proud of being a Marathi and should not be ashamed of protecting the mother tongue,'' he said at a rally of MNS activists in the city.
Claiming that no action was taken against others who gave provocative speeches, Mr Thackeray alleged that he was being victimised. ''I will not be cowed down by these actions and will keep on talking about the mother tongue and its protection and preservation.'' UNI XC KD AS2246
