Patna, Oct 31 (UNI) The JD(U) MPs have threatened to resign from Lok Sabha en mass on Novemer seven if their demands for imposition of President's Rule in Maharashtra and arrest of the MNS chief Raj Thackeray were not conceded.

JD(U) Bihar unit president and MP Rajiv Ranjan alias Lalan Singh and party MP Prabhunath Singh said here today that the decision to quit Lok Sabha was taken in party's national parliamentary board meeting.

They said in protest against the attacks on the North Indians in Maharashtra and ''indifference'' of the Centre in taking any action against the culprits, the MPs had decided to quit if their demands were not unfulfilled by the timeframe set by the party.

They said the party MPs had given the ultimatum and would put down their papers on November 7 for which they had sought an appointment from Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee the same day.

Apart from imposition of President's Rule in Maharashtra and arrest of Raj Thackeray, they had demanded CBI probe into the encounter killing Rahul Raj, a youth from Patna in Mumbai, and arrest of the concerned policemen.

Both leaders appealed to the RJD and LJP to dissociate from the Congress, which ''promoted Bal Thackeray and now Raj Thackeray as another Bhindranwale''.

They dubbed Raj Thackeray as a ''terrorist'' and demanded to book him under MCOCA.
