Jammu: The Nationalist Communist Party today condemned the "soft stand" of Maharashtra government against Raj Thackrey over his controversial statements against north Indians.

"We condemn the soft stand of Maharashtra Chief Minister. It encouraged him (Thackray) to open fronts against north Indians, artists from Pakistan and popular singer Asha Bhonsle," former minister and party's state chief Thakur Randhir Singh said today.

He said nobody had the right to "divide" the country and people had the right to work anywhere in India according to their wishes.

"Mumbai has become a financial hub with the help of people (who came to work there) from Jammu and Kashmir to Kanyakumari", Singh said.

He also protested against alleged acquisition of agriculture land for the establishment of industrial growth centres in Kathua, Ghati, Samba, Bari-Brahamana and Gangyal.
