Daring the government to arrest him, MNS chief Raj Thackerey on Saturday again targeted north Indians saying only Maharashtra Day should be celebrated in the state.

"Let the government arrest me if it wants, I maintain my stand that only Maharashtra Day should be celebrated in Maharashtra," he told a rally to mark the second anniversary of MNS.

Breaking his silence after over two months, Raj justified what he had earlier said about megastar Amitabh Bachchan about his "allegiance to Uttar Pradesh", took a swipe at the actor's wife Jaya for her comments on him (Raj) and also at Railway Minister Lalu Prasad.

The MNS was formed after he broke away with the Shiv Sena following differences with his cousins and its executive chief Uddav Thackerey.
