Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar yesterday said that MNS chief Raj Thackeray is publicity-hungry and has nothing to do with democracy.

Kumar was reacting to Thackeray’s remarks last week that Biharis in Maharashtra were “infiltrators”.

Kumar wondered how the Maharashtra government would handle terrorism when it had failed to tackle a person like Thackeray. “It appears that Raj Thackeray has support of the Congress for doing all this,” he said.

Last week, Thackeray had called Biharis in Maharashtra “infiltrators” in reaction to reports of a letter from the Bihar chief secretary warning Mumbai police against picking up suspects from the state without first informing local police.
