New Delhi, Feb 7 (IANS) A lawyer Thursday moved the Supreme Court seeking direction to the Election Commission to derecognise Raj Thackeray’s Maharashtra Navanirman Sena (MNS) for his controversial remarks against north Indians last week.

Advocate Arvind Shukla is likely to apprise the bench of Chief Justice K.G. Balakrishnan of his petition filed in the apex court’s registry and seek its urgent hearing.

The petition has been filed in the wake of violence by allegedly Thackeray’s party workers targeting north Indians.

The petitioner has sought directions to the central government and the Maharashtra government to take action against Thackeray alleging that his action had endangered the integrity of the nation.
