Mumbai, Jan 29 (UNI) President of the state unit of Samajwadi Party Abu Asim today said a case should be registered against the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) President Raj Thackeray for his anti-North Indian stand.
Speaking at a press conference to announce party's rally here next month, Mr Azmi said government should register a case against the MNS President as he had threatened to stop the North Indians in the city from celebrating their foundation day from next year onwards in an interview to a section of media.
He said Mr Thackeray even alleged that the Maharashtrians in the city were being thrown out by people from other states.
''Such statements from the leader of a political party incite hatred among people of different castes,'' Mr Azmi said.
NCP leader Munna Tripathi said, ''Raj Thackeray had gone berserk as his cousin and executive president of the Shiv Sena, Uddhav Thackeray was the chief guest of the North Indian foundation day held in the city on January 24.'' ''If the five million North Indians in the city come together, MNS will not be able to survive,'' he added.
The Samajwadi Party will organise a rally here at Shivaji Park on February 3 to highlight the problems in the state keeping in mind the Parliamentary and Assembly elections next year.
