Mumbai, Feb 3 (ANI): Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray today hit back at Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi's 'Mumbai for all Indians' comment by saying Mumbai may belong to all Indians, but how can it belong to an Italian mummy.
In a statement in the party mouthpiece "Saamna", Thackeray said Mumbai was not a guesthouse of the country that anyone comes to Mumbai and leaves."
Mumbai belongs to Maharashtra and Marathi people, Thackeray said, and added that "If anyone is going to murder this truth, he will have to face weapons of Maharashtra".
Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday criticized both the Shiv Sena and the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) for their unwarranted attacks on north Indians, and said that every inch of India belongs to each and every Indian.
Gandhi reminded both political outfits that the commandoes who saved Mumbai during the 26/11 terror attacks were north Indians.
He further said that the commandoes, who forced their way into the besieged buildings, did not bother about which state they belonged to. (ANI)
