The Shiv Sena on Friday objected to what it termed as 'anti-Maharashtra' comments by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi during poll campaign in Bihar and said it would launch a state-wide protest against him.

"Rahul Gandhi has insulted Marathis in Bihar and the Marathis in Maharashtra. He has lost his balance," Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray told reporters at Sena Bhawan, the party's headquarters in central Mumbai.

"Why is Maharashtra being dragged into the Bihar election issue," he said. "Ruling Congress and MPs in Maharashtra should explain their stance on the matter," he added.

Uddhav said that according to Rahul, people of Bihar were being thrown out of Maharashtra and Mumbai even though they had made a major contribution to the development of Maharashtra.

Terming Rahul's 'walking-talking' as 'monkey business', Uddhav said the Nehru-Gandhi family has always adopted an anti-Maharashtra posture and Rahul was following the same trend.
