Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has purportedly put up posters in Navi Mumbai instructing Bangladeshis residing illegally in India to leave the country or be ready to be driven out ‘MNS style’.
The posters, stating ‘Bangladeshis leave the country, or you will be driven out in MNS style’, feature the MNS chief and his son Amit Thackeray, who was recently inducted into the party.
The posters were first spotted in Panvel in the neighbouring Navi Mumbai.

Last month, while unveiling the party’s new flag, Raj Thackeray lent support to the Narendra Modi government over the eviction of illegal immigrants, along with the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and proposed National Register of Citizens (NRC).
He also announced that his party will take out a huge rally on February 9 in Mumbai to drive “illegal infiltrators” from Pakistan and Bangladesh, out of India.
“We will take out a huge rally on February 9 to drive illegal infiltrators from Pakistan and Bangladesh, out of India. There can be a debate on the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) but why should we shelter someone who has come from outside illegally?” he had said.
