Mumbai, Jun 25 (UNI) Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray has come down heavily on the communist parties, saying they have a pro-China and anti-America approach and described them as 'anti nationals'.
In an editorial titled 'Lal Makdanchi bhangad' (Red monkeys issue) in party's mouthipiece Saamna, Mr Thackeray said the nuclear deal with the US is bound to help India, but the communists are questioning the Hyde Act, saying the country will be a slave of the US.
Mr Thackeray questioned whether the country is not the slave of World Bank, adding that all the so called 'secular' parties are also slaves of fundamentalist Muslims. He said Sachchar committee recommendations are an agreement between the Congress and Muslims, which is more horrible than the Nuclear deal.
Quoting Pt Jawaharlal Nehru, he said even the first Prime Minister of India had described Communists as anti-nationals.
The communists were instrumental in ousting the king of the only Hindu country Nepal and now with the help of a group of 50-60 MPs they are trying to get what they want by becoming a pressure group since the UPA government is at their mercy, he added.
