Twenty leaders of the Shiv Sena's Delhi unit resigned en-masse from the party on Thursday to protest the saffron group's anti-north Indian stand.
The move comes a day after party's North Indian leaders led by Jai Bhagwan Goyal resigned en-masse to protest outfit's "outrageous conduct" towards non-Marathis in Maharashtra.
"The resignations have been send to Bal Thackeray," a party leader said and reiterated full support to Goyal.
Goyal, who was associated with the Shiv Sena for the past 20 years, announce on Wednesday that he would form a separate party and claimed the support of the state units of Jharkhand, Himachal Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana and Punjab.
