By Staff

Jamshedpur, Apr 1 (UNI) Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda today came down heavily on Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray for his alleged comment on Bollywood Tanushree Dutta and said anti-national and criminal cases should be lodged against both Raj and Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray for indulging in separatism and regionalism.

Mr Koda told mediapersons that he would talk to the Central ministry to initiate action against the MNS chief.

''Tanushree is proud of Jharkhand. We shall not tolerate any insult to her. I have full sympathy with the actress. Raj Thackeray has no right to insult an artists, who should not be confined in the boundary of a state'', Mr Koda reiterated.

He also appealed the Bollywood film industry to boycott both Raj and Bal Thackeray socially.

Significantly, Mr Thackeray had urged the film producers to blacklist Tanushree following a brawl with veteran actor Nana Patekar during a shooting in Mumbai recently.

To a question the Chief Minister ruled out any adverse impact on his government following the defeat of the UPA candidate in Rajya Sabha elections. He said the outcome of the RS would not affect the state government. ''My government will complete its full term'', he said.

Asked about the security of the investors in the state as the employees of Bhusan Steel plant were assaulted by the locals at Potka near here yesterday when they were cordoning off land to set up a steel plant, Mr Koda said the incident was unfortunate but he assured all sorts of help to the investors, who were planning to set up industries in the state.

Later, Mr Koda inaugurated a building at the premises of government bus stop at Mango here and then attended a function of Utkal Association on the occasion of Utkal Diwas.
