Toughening his stand against migrants, specially north Indians, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray on Thursday indicated that his party would launch more intense agitation on the issue.
"Whatever happened so far was a trailer, a teaser. There are more to come," the belligerent MNS chief said during an interactive session for online edition of a leading Marathi newspaper.
"You come as a paying guest and claim right of ownership over the house. This won't be tolerated," Thackeray said.
"In Maharashtra, nine crore Marathi people are taken for granted and the remaining two crore, who are outsiders, are appeased," he added.
MNS would contest Lok Sabha polls, Raj said, adding that he would not go in for poll-alliances at the cost of interests of Marathi people.
Ruling out his contesting elections, Raj said the Nano project would not have gone to Gujarat if he were the Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
Raj riled ruling politicians for failure to make an offer similar or better than the one made by Gujarat CM Narendra Modi to Tata.
"Our politicians only think of their own constituencies, not the entire state. The Nano project is coming up in Sanand, which is not Modi's constituency. We lack this kind of vision in our state," he said.
