Patna: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, at a press meet in Patna on Sunday, slammed Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray for threatening to label Biharis in Maharashtra as 'infiltrators', or illegal aliens.

Kumar said that the MNS sepratatist was making such unhinged statements to gain publicity in an attempt to establish his political relevancy.

"Thackeray does not have any right to make any such statement. His statements are unconstitutional and are designed to promote his political aspirations," the Chief Minister said.

Meanwhile, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) activists in Patna on Sunday burnt the effigy of Raj Thackeray demanding his immediate arrest and charges of sedition and treason filed against him.

"Thackeray is a threat to national security and as such, must be dealt as the enemy of the state," said the NCP leaders in Patna.

Congress MP Sanjay Nirupam also demanded legal action against MNS chief Raj Thackeray under the National Security Act (NSA).

"Thackeray’s remarks were anti-national, unconstitutional and totally uncalled for. People from Bihar are free to go wherever they want to and Raj Thackeray has no right to insult them in this manner," Nirupam said.
