Raj Thackeray's party asks music companies to drop Pakistan singers

Stop working with Pakistani singers, or we'll take action in our own style: Maharashtra Navnirman Sena to Bollywood

Stop working with Pakistani singers, or we'll take action in our own style: Maharashtra Navnirman Sena to Bollywood

After the death of more than 40 CRPF personnel in the Pulwama terror attack, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has asked the music companies to stop working with Pakistani singers. Don't pay any attention to it. Elections and alliances will continue to happen, but don't spare Pakistan this time. But Pakistan must not be allowed to go scot- free. The remark was made by Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray.

Thursday's terror attack should be condemned in the strongest possible terms, he said. "We had made surgical strikes in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir but now have to penetrate into Pakistan directly". Now the time has come to strike inside Pakistan.

The meeting was attended by representatives from different political parties including Communist Party of India, represented by its leader (CPI) D. Raja who demanded the government to ensure the safety of Kashmiri people residing in different parts of the country.

EPL: Manchester United ready to make De Gea highest paid player
De Gea's initial deal saw his time end this summer though his one year extension clause is said to have been triggered. The Spaniard is out of contract next year at the club and has been non-committal about his future beyond then.

Reacting to reports that intelligence agencies had given warnings about a threat before the attacks, the Sena chief said that if the attacks took place despite the warnings, agency heads should be shunted out. "It has blown the country's intelligence system into smithereens", he said, demanding action against those who failed to take necessary steps to prevent such incidents in spite of being in charge.

Sena legislator and spokesperson Manisha Kayande said boycotting tourism in Jammu and Kashmir, "where youth, women and children pelt stones on security forces", would hurt the economic resources of the northern state.
