'Malaria' remark: RJD seeks Thackeray's arrest

patna Updated: Aug 03, 2010 18:26 IST

Outraged over MNS chief Raj Thackeray indicating that spread of malaria in Mumbai was due to migrant workers from North India, RJD on Tuesday demanded his arrest on charges of hurting sentiments of people of Bihar and UP.

"Thackeray has yet again hurt the sentiments of the people of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh by making snide remarks against them by holding the migrants responsible for outbreak of malaria in Mumbai," RJD Spokesman Shakeel Ahmed Khan told reporters in Patna.

For this, the government should arrest him, he demanded.

This is not the first time the MNS chief has invoked anger over the issue as he has time and again taken a swipe at the lakhs of migrant labourers from the two states who work in Mumbai.
