NCP brands BJP’s alliance with MNS ‘anti-north’

Patna, March 9,(ANI): General Secretary of the Nationalist Congress Party Tariq Anwar on Sunday lashed out at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over seeking support of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray’s support for its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, as unholy.

“It is a known fact that MNS chief is not only against the Biharis but he is against the whole North Indian community. That Nitin Gadkari has taken the initiative to go ahead and call on Raj Thackeray, and consequently, MNS chief extending his support for Modi shows that the saffron party cares little on whether their alliance with MNS could hurt the psyche of North Indians.”

In a significant political move, MNS chief Raj Thackeray on Sunday announced candidates for the Lok Sabha polls and also declared his party’s support for BJP’s prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi. (ANI)
