Mumbai, Nov 30 (UNI) Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) president Raj Thackeray today said the influx of outsiders was the reason for law and order problem in the state, citing the terrorist attacks on the metropolis on November 26.
In a letter to Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, he said 40,000 slums have cropped up on either side of the main pipeline of the city and the government was not doing anything to control the same.
Criticising his parent party Shiv Sena, without naming it, he said the same party whose mouthpiece had criticised the Anti-terrorism Squad chief late Hemant Karkare, was now showering praises on him.
Mr Thackeray also flayed Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and senior BJP leader L K Advani for trying to gain political mileage from the attacks.
He said though he had differences with Congress President Sonia Gandhi, she should be praised for not politicising the issue of Parliament attacks during the BJP rule.
Mr Thackeray also criticised NCP supremo Sharad Pawar, without naming him, and said where were the people who had claimed to go to any level to protect the outsiders, when the attacks occurred.
He said in all 14 Marathi cops laid down their lives while fighting the terrorists during the worst ever attacks on the city.
