Hours after Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thakeray called for a Modi Mukt Bharat, party workers pulled down signboards written in Gujarati from some commercial establishments in Mumbai and adjoining Vasai.
MNS workers ransacked a few roadside eateries near Vasai, on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway, Sunday night and destroyed their signboards written in Gujarati.
On Monday, some shops in Mumbai that had Gujarati signboards was also attacked by the MNS workers. These included a sweet shop in the north Mumbai suburb of Kandivli, police said.
Addressing the party workers at a rally at Shivaji Park in central Mumbai last night, Raj Thackeray had said, "The country is fed up with the false promises made by (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi and his government. All the opposition parties should come together to get rid of the BJP-led NDA government to ensure a Modi-mukt Bharat," he had said.
