Mumbai, Jun 19 (UNI) Shiv Sena Executive President Uddhav Thackeray today came out in support of north Indians and other non-Marathi people staying in Maharashtra even as his cousin Raj Thackeray continued targeting them.
''Where will the north Indians or other non-Marathi people, who speak in Marathi and are staying here for generations go?'' he questioned, while talking to Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamna on the occasion of 42nd anniversary of the party.
Without naming Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), the party led by Mr Raj Thackeray, he said the state government would be questioned on north Indian's attack.
''Shiv Sena is not at all connected with this issue,'' he said and added he would speak on the issue after the government cleared its stand.
''If there were jobs in Uttar Pradesh, nobody would have left their home town,'' he added.
