Sena hits out at 'Lalu brand of MLAs'

india Updated: Feb 25, 2008 16:32 IST

Shiv Sena on Monday hits out at Railway Minister and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav for "undignified" treatment meted out by some RJD MLAs from Bihar to Governor R S Gavai during his address in the state assembly.

"Lalu brand of MLAs' were responsible for undignified treatment to the Governor, who hails from Maharashtra," the party said.

In an editorial in its mouthpiece Samana, the Sena said, "the Bihar MLAs have the temerity to tell the Bihar Governor to go back to Maharashtra but when it comes to Sonia Gandhi who is a foreigner, they behave in an subservient manner."

"The key of free India is with the foreigner Sonia Gandhi. Her government runs on the support of Lalu. First show some guts to raise slogans against Sonia asking her to go back to her own country," the editorial said.

The editorial criticised the behaviour of Bihar MLAs who created unruly scenes during Gavai's address to the Assembly last week wherein some of them reportedly raised slogans like "Gavai go back to Maharashtra" because "Biharis were not safe in Maharashtra".

The incident in the House came in the wake of attack on the north Indian migrants in Mumbai and parts of Maharashtra by Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS).
