Mumbai not for 'Italian mummy': Thackeray

Written by: Staff

Mumbai, Feb 3: Shiv Sena Chief Bal Thackeray on Wednesday, Feb 3, hit back at Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi's 'Mumbai for all Indians' comment.

In an editorial in Sena mouthpiece 'Saamna', Bal Thackeray said, "Mumbai may belong to all Indians but how can it belong to an Italian mummy."

He further said, "The 'Prince of Congress' is totally frustrated bachelor and it is in this frustration he has insulted Marathi people and Maharashtra."

"Mumbai was not a dharamshala (guesthouse) of the country that anyone comes to Mumbai, spits here and leaves," he said.

Thackeray said that Rahul Gandhi has lost mental balance as he is still single despite advancing age.

Mumbai belongs to Maharashtra and Marathi people, Thackeray maintained and added that "If anyone is going to murder this truth, he will have to face weapons of Maharashtra".

Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday, Feb 2, had asserted that India is for all Indians and people have a right to go anywhere.
