Bal Thackeray through his party’s mouthpiece, Saamna, has send across a stern message to politicians in Karnataka.
On Wednesday, the Sena chief threatened Kannadigas in Mumbai and Udipi restaurant owners, saying if politicians from Karnataka continued their “atrocities” on Marathis in Belgaum, they too wouldn’t hesitate in answering back in a similar way.
He alleged that the Kannada Rakshak Vedike, who attacked and burnt down Maharashtra state transport buses, had the support of the government. “No one would conduct such protests unless they had the support of the establishment,” he wrote.
Thackeray blasted the Karnataka government and alleged that they were taking support of the police to hurt Marathi protestors in Belgaum.
“Your state transport buses too come here. Maharashtra also has stones and Maharashtrians have strong wrists to pick up those stones and fight back,” he wrote.
“Congress and NCP politicians may not take action but the Sena will not keep quite and no one should play with fire,” he warned.
