Mumbai, Sep 29 (UNI) Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray today condemned the reported move of the Parliament Privileges Committee to summon Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray for his comments on MPs from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh in the editorial of his Party's mouthpiece ''Saamna''.

Raj Thackeray, in a statement issued here, warned that if Senior Thackeray was summoned by the committee, no leader or officer from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar would be allowed to enter the state.

Mr Raj said he was against the move since Bal Thackeray was a senior leader, even though from a different political outfit. The summons was an insult to the Sena chief, who is aged and not keeping well, the estranged nephew said.

The committee, headed by senior Congress MP V Kishore Chandra Deo, in August recorded evidence of members who had raised a breach of privilege against the Shiv Sena chief.

In his editorial, Bal Thackeray had criticised MPs from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar for allegedly launching an anti-Marathi tirade in Parliament.
