NEW DELHI: The Janata Dal (United) on Thursday said that Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray’s recent remarks against the non-Maharashtrians shows his ‘frustration’ with his party’s dismal performance in the state assembly elections.

JD (U) leader KC Tyagi also questioned Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis-led Government in Maharashtra’s silence over MNS chief’s provoking remarks.

“Because of his frustration of losing the elections, he is making such statements against the poor North Indians. He is provoking people and the state government is silent over the matter,” Tyagi told ANI.

According to reports, Thackeray urged party workers to take to the streets, burn auto-rickshaws and keep pursuing the ‘Marathi’ agenda.

Speaking at an event to mark 10 years of MNS on Wednesday, he alleged corruption in the purchase of 70,000 new auto-rickshaws in Mumbai for which the BJP-led state government is issuing permits.

MNS chief also accused the BJP government in Maharashtra of showing favours to Bajaj Auto in the matter.

The MNS president's highly provocative speech was aimed at safeguarding the party's vote-bank ahead of the 2017 BMC elections.
