The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has taken on the MNS and the Shiv Sena by coming out in support of north Indians in Maharashtra.
RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has asked sangh workers in Maharashtra to protect north Indians from attacks. This could be the organisation making clear its stance against any linguistic chauvinism.
Stung by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s (RSS) criticism of its anti-north Indians policy, the Shiv Sena on Monday hit back saying the RSS should “keep off the issue”.
“We do not need lessons from the RSS. It will be in their interest not to rake up the issue. Our stand on this is not new. Mumbai belongs to Marathis,” Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray asserted in Mumbai.
