Kolkata, Nov 4 (UNI) Criticising the attack on north Indians in Maharashtra, West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee today said such incidents were not at all desirable in the country.
''What is happening in the financial capital of the country is totally undesirable in free India,'' he said, while inaugurating a programme to launch the formation of the Rajasthan-Bengal Maitri Parishad here.
Without naming Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray or his party, Mr Bhattacharjee said India is a multi-lingual and multi-religious country and every one should have free access to any part of it.
''Unfortunately, even 61 years after independence, we are yet to develop the feeling that we are all Indians,'' he said.
The Chief Minister observed that the country was facing the dangers of chauvinism, terrorism and communalism. He urged the people to fight poverty, hunger and unemployment.
Lauding the Rajasthanis living in West Bengal, he said the state's economy had advanced and development had taken place because of their enterprise.
