MNS Workers Thrashing Non Maharashtrians in Sangli

Mumbai: On Wednesday, in a video surfaced online showed Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) members attacking the Non-Maharashtrians on the pretext of demanding preference to local youth for jobs in the MIDC Kupwad, Sangli industrial area.

The Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) Kupwad workers, as per sources, have demanded that local youth be given preference during hiring in the region’s industries rather than the non-Maharashtrians.


In the video montage, several MNS workers were seen chasing some persons, then thrashing them and later beating them up.


The once again public attack came just days after MNS had held a march in Mumbai against hawkers over railway bridges and stations. This was in the light of the Elphinstone stampede which claimed 23 lives.

MNS had raised the issue of unemployment of Maharashtrian youths and blamed the ‘outsiders’ for it especially the migrants coming from north India.


Following Raj’s tirade, even MNS workers had beaten up north Indian hawkers and cab drivers.


In the year 2008, the scenario was seen when clashes had broken out between MNS and Samajwadi party workers over “cultural dadagiri of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar migrants and their leaders.”
