Patna, Oct 31: The JD(U) MPs have threatened to resign from the Lok Sabha en mass on Novemer 7 if their demands for imposition of the President's Rule in Maharashtra and arrest of 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 the Lok Sabha was taken in the 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 on the same day.
Apart from imposition of the President's Rule in Maharashtra and arrest of Raj Thackeray, they had demanded CBI probe into the encounter killing of 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.
