22year old bihari boy with a rifle want to talk with Raj Thackeray -shot dead by Mumbai Police

Putting their differences aside, union railway minister Lalu Prasad Yadav and Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar met prime minister Dr Manmohan Singh seeking action against Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray. The shootout in Mumbai bus has clearly taken a political turn with Lalu demanding Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray's arrest.
With arch rival Lalu Prasad Yadav upping the stakes over Bihar-Maharashtra row, Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar now gets into the act.
Nitish Kumar addressing the mediamen outside the prime minister's office, said, "MNS is acting against the integration of the nation. Their activities are highly condemnable. What is happening in Maharashtra and against Biharis is an anti-national act. We have asked the prime minister to take strict against Raj Thackeray and MNS."
Criticising the attacks on north Indians in Mumbai, Lalu Prasad said, Shiv Sena and MNS are continuously waging a war against north Indians especially against Biharis. There should be a ban on Shiv Sena and MNS. They are against the integration of this country."
Lalu speaking on the Mumbai bus shoot out said, "The Bihari boy Rahul Raj is not a terrorist, is not a criminal. From the footage we cannot see him shooting any one. The police comes to the scene and kills the boy even as he says to everyone that he has no grudge against any passenger."
In the wake of attacks by MNS activists on railway job aspirants from Bihar in Mumbai, an all-party delegation met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today, demanding action against the MNS.
The delegation headed by Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar submitted a joint memorandum to the Prime Minister and sought action against the MNS for attacking North Indian students.
The delegation included union ministers, parliamentarians and leaders of various political parties. It also sought protection of north Indians living in Mumbai. Earlier, leaders at an all-party meet expressed anguish over the attack on North Indian examinees in Maharashtra by activists of Raj Thackeray's MNS.
