Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray has blamed "Bihari" migrants for the recent case of gangrape of a girl in New Delhi.
"All are talking about the Delhi gangrape, but nobody is asking from where these men came. No one is asking who did this. So many cases are slapped against me (for speaking against Biharis) but no one is talking about the fact that all these rapists are from Bihar," he said, addressing a public function in suburban Goregaon last night.
"The system has collapsed," Raj said.
The gangrape of a 23-year-old paramedical student in the national capital has led to thousands of protesters taking to the streets demanding stricter anti-rape laws.
A Delhi court, yesterday, took cognisance of the charge sheet filed by the Delhi Police and summoned the five accused named in it on January 7.
The case of the minor accused in the crime will also be heard before a Juvenile Justice Board.
RJD chief Lalu Prasad slams Raj for habitually insulting Bihari migrants>
RJD chief Lalu Prasad today slammed MNS chief Raj Thackeray for blaming Bihari migrants for the Delhi gang-rape case and related incidents occurring elsewhere in the country.
"It has become a habit of (Raj) Thackeray and his extended family (Shiv Sena) to insult Bihari migrants all the time and for all crimes taking place in the country," he said.
They should refrain from making habitual and insulting remarks against the Bihari migrants as these were not in national interests, Prasad told reporters.
Flaying the tendency to equate the people of a particular state with crimes, the RJD chief said people of a state in general could not be blamed for crimes, the perpetrators of which should be dealt with sternly.
The Thackerays were guilty of making insulting and provocative comments against the Bihari migrants to further their divisive political agenda, he said.
