Trying hard to create a space in his own state, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray has no welcome sign from Uttar Pradesh. Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) member of parliament and a prominent face of Ram Mandir movement, Brijbhushan Saran Singh has asked him to refrain from coming to Ayodhya. The BJP MP has lashed out at Raj Thackeray for the latter's stand against north Indians.

He has said that Raj Thackeray would not be allowed to enter Ayodhya unless he apologizes to north Indians with folded hands. The BJP MP has even advised the UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath not meet Raj Thackeray. Brijbhushan said that first Raj should tender unconditional apology to the north Indians and then meet UP CM. In continued tweets on Thursday, the BJP MP Singh attacked on Raj Thackeray and said that insult of north Indians cannot be tolerated.

Brijbhushan who was also among the accused in the Babri demolition case, said that Thakre family had nothing to do with the temple movement. He said that Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS), Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the common people, spearheaded the Ram Mandir movement. There was no role of Thackeray family in it.

It may be mentioned that MNS Chief Raj has recently hit headlines for his opposition of Ajaan and giving calls for chanting of Hanuman Chalisa in front of mosques. Known for his anti-north Indians stand in Maharashtra politics, Raj Thackeray has announced to visit Ayodhya on June 5 and offer prayer at Ram Janmabhoomi temple.

The MNS Chief has also praised the Yogi Government for removing loudspeakers from religious places. It is expected that during his visit to UP, he might meet CM Yogi.

Meanwhile, according to BJP leaders of UP, MNS and its chief is known for anti-north Indian stand and hence any association with him might cause damage to the party in other parts of the country.
