Thackeray Attacks Mukesh for ‘Mumbai Belongs to All’ Remarks

Industrialist Mukesh Ambani turns out to be the latest target of Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray for his recent statement that Mumbai belongs to all Indians, reported PTI.

“Marathi people have as much right over Mumbai as Mukesh Ambani has over Reliance companies,” Thackeray said in an article published in Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.

“Mumbai is Maharashtra’s capital and will remain its capital. Don’t meddle in the path of Mumbai and Marathi manoos,” he said.

Thackeray went on to say, “when ‘Pandit Mukesh Ambani’ says Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi belong to all Indians, why has he left out cities likes Ahmedabad, Jamnagar and Rajkot.”

Following Maharashtra government’s decision to make Marathi mandatory for taxi-permit, Ambani had said that the decision was ‘unfortunate’ and that the metropolis belongs to all Indians.

“We are all Indians first. Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi belong to all Indians. That is the reality,” he had said during a panel discussion at the London School of Economics.
