Nirupam to apprise senior Cong leaders on Mumbai crisis
Demanding stern action against Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray for destroying communal harmony in the city, Congress spokesman Sanjay Nirupam on Wednesday said that he would brief the party "higher ups" about the "havoc" created by the leader.
"I am going to New Delhi to attend the AICC meeting as I have been appointed an observer of north-eastern states. I intend to brief the higher ups about the situation created by Thackeray, especially for the poor north Indian migrants, and the way he was destroying the communal harmony of the city," Nirupam told PTI.
"I reiterate my demand that Thackeray needs to be arrested for destroying the harmony of the city and creating law and order problems," he added.
He said that he has already conveyed the feelings of the north Indians to Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh.
Nirupam, who was to lead a protest rally towards the house of Raj Thackeray, was arrested yesterday along with his supporters before he could embark on the rally. He was later released on bail.
