Mumbai, May 29: Fearing law and order problem in the city and all over Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh Vikas Parisad (UPVP) President Mangleshwar Tripathi, today said if required, he will move to the Bombay High Court to seek a ban on Union Railway Minister Lalu Prasad's entry here.

Reacting to Mr Prasad's plan to host public celebration of 'Chhat Puja' at Shivaji Park Chowpatti, Mr Tripathi said he should celebrate the festival at his hometown Patna, not here.

''We all 'Mumbaikar' are capable to perform the ceremony and if Mr Prasad is willing to take part in the 'puja' in the city, he may join on invitation for the same at the venue where Mumbai-based North Indian like Sanjay Nirupam and others would organise the festival.'' he said.

Mr Yadav had recently stated that he will host public celebration of 'Chhat Puja' at Shivaji Park Chowpatti, which is barely 15-minutes of walking distance from MNS (Maharashtra Navnirman Sena) Chief Raj Thackeray's residence.

Mr Tripathi alleged that Mr Yadav had already messed up in Bihar and now he was targeting Mumbai, where North Indian' were staying as 'Mumbaikars' to earn their livelihood.

Commenting on State Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh's statement pertaining to allow Mr Prasad to perform 'Chhat Puja', Mr Tripathi said it was not relevant on the part of the State Government to allow Mr Prasad to do so as it would create a law and order problem.
