MNS workers vandalise Gujarati signboards in Vasai

A group of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) workers vandalised Gujarati signboards at Vasai along the Mumbai-Ahmedabad Highway.

This comes a day after party chief Raj Thackeray targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah.

At least half a dozen hotels in Vasai were targeted by men carrying MNS flags.

The Waliv police station has registered a case and an investigation is on.

Vasai is located nearly 100 km from the Gujarat border.

"Vasai is in Maharashtra and not Gujarat and we will not tolerate name boards in Gujarati anymore," said MNS Thane unit President Avinash Jadhav.

At a Gudi Padwa rally in Shivaji Park, Dadar, on Sunday evening, the MNS chief had urged political parties to come together and called for a "Modi mukt Bharat".

He launched a massive broadside against Modi, Shah and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

"How can there be signboards in Vasai when it is in Maharashtra and not Gujarat...what is happening is part of a systematic design...look at the geography," he charged.

Raj said that a few days ago, Union minister Nitin Gadkari had said that a Mumbai-Vadodara Expressway is coming up at a cost of Rs 22,000 crore.

"The prime minister's dream project of the Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train is underway and will cost Rs 1.10 lakh crore.

"Do people in Maharashtra need that," he asked.
