The Samajwadi Party on Friday said it could go to any extent to ensure safety of North Indians in Maharashtra but ruled out withdrawing support to the UPA government.
"We can go to any extent to ensure safety of people from North India," SP General Secretary Amar Singh told reporters in Delhi.
On whether the party will withdraw support to the UPA government on the issue, he said there is no question of withdrawing support to the government.
He said the party still has confidence in the leadership of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
Singh said Railway Minister Lalu Prasad and LJP leader and Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan were unable to put pressure on the government to act tough.
Singh accused the administration in Maharashtra of extending support the Mumbai Navnirman Sena.
