Bihar all-party meet demands stern action against Raj ThackerayOctober 23rd, 2008 - 11:36 pm ICT by IANS
Patna, Oct 23 (IANS) Political parties in Bihar Thursday buried their differences and jointly demanded stern action against Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray after his supporters attacked Biharis in Maharashtra. “It was the demand of all parties, there were no differences,” said a legislator of the state’s ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA).
To put pressure on the central government, the meeting also decided to send an all-party delegation from Bihar to meet the prime minister and the home minister on the issue, he said.
MNS activists had Sunday attacked north Indian candidates, particularly Biharis, appearing for a railway recruitment exam in Mumbai as part of the party’s campaign against migrants.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had called the all-party meet to discuss the situation in the wake of violent anti-MNS protests by students across the state since Tuesday. The protests continued Thursday.
