A delegation of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena party workers met State Governor S C Jamir to appeal for increased security cover for MNS Chief Raj Thackeray. Under the leadership of senior MNS leader Shishir Shinde a group of MNS party workers met Governor S C Jamir to discuss the security cover for MNS chief Raj Thackeray. They appealed to the Governor to restore Z security for Raj Thackeray. Speaking to the media, the MNS leader said that when people like Shibu Soren and Lalu Prasad Yadav get security cover then why not their party leader. He also alleged that whenever the ruling front finds a leader’s status growing to levels that challenges the identity of the government, the state reduces the security cover for them. The Raj Thackeray issue has become a sort of a challenge for the state. If the state shows leniency in the case, the entire country criticizes the ruling front and when it decides to take action then, the lose face within the state. And each factor is somewhere going to affect the prospects of the ruling front in the next elections. With cameraperson Vikrant Baile, Rajeev Mishra for NMTV News.
