Mumbai, Apr 9: The Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) is peeved over Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's statement that no one can stop him from going to Mumbai and take part in 'Bihar Divas celebration'.
Asked for his comment on the MNS's opposition to his visit to the metropolis, Kumar said in Patna today that there was no ban on a visit, and he could go anywhere.
"Raj saheb will make the party's stance on the issue clear at a public meeting at Malegaon on Apr 12," a senior MNS leader said, adding that Kumar's statement had not gone down well with the party.
"Mumbai is the capital of Maharashtra. If anybody tries to show Maharashtra's culture and Marathi language in a bad light, it will not be tolerated," he said.
Though no one from MNS has formally announced so, recent media reports said the party will not allow the celebration of Bihar Divas in Mumbai on Apr 15.
