He had also warned of a ‘befitting reply’ to rallies being held against the CAA and the NRC, and said ‘a morcha will be answered with a morcha, a stone with a stone and a sword with a sword’.
Besides, the MNS had marched from Girgaum Chowpatty to Azad Maidan demanding eviction of illegal Pakistani and Bangladeshi infiltrators. “Do these people (illegal immigrants from Pakistan and Bangladesh) consider my county a ‘dharmashala’ (charity shelter)?” Thackeray had asked, while speaking on the NRC.
