13/7 arrests have exposed 'Bihar connection': Raj Thackeray

PTI | January 24, 2012



Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray today launched a fresh attack on north Indians, singling out the arrest of terrorists from Bihar, in the 13/7 serial blasts case.

"I have been saying that due to influx of north Indians, terror activities are on the rise. The arrest of terrorists hailing from Bihar, in the 13/7 serial blasts case, has confirmed my claim," Raj told reporters here.

"The Bihar connection in 13/7 case has been exposed.

Will someone pay attention towards it or not? I don't know why a fuss is made over my statements," he added.

On the warning, issued by the State Election Commissioner Neela Satyanarayan about cancelling the registration of his party, Raj said, "Can we not ask questions to the Election Commission?"

"If deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar can get away by tendering an apology, I hope the Commission will also give the same opportunity to others," he said, adding that he has not insulted the State Election Commission.

"I only want it to be impartial," he said.

Backing Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, who last year invited him to tour the state, as the Prime Ministerial candidate, Raj said, "If people from my party get elected as MPs, I will support Modi for the Prime Minister's post."
