All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary Digvijay Singh today hit back at MNS chief Raj Thackeray for threatening to brand people of Bihar origin in Maharashtra as 'infiltrators' and force them out of the state, saying fishermen are the true inhabitants of Mumbai and that the MNS chief's family is also from Bihar.

Talking to reporters here, Mr Singh said, "only the fishermen are the true inhabitants of Mumbai. The rest of people have come from outside. If we look back into history then we can say that Mumbai is a city of fishermen and others have come from outside. Raj Thackeray's family also is from Bihar. They came from Bihar, got settled in Dhar, and then they reached Mumbai." Demanding an investigation into the incident of violence in Azad Maidan in Mumbai, the Congress General Secretary said, "around 100 to 150 people came with weapons and were involved in this. The investigation should be done to know by whom it was done. I think there is a conspiracy behind it." Raj Thackeray had yesterday threatened to force Biharis out of Maharashtra if authorities in Bihar take legal action against Mumbai policemen who picked up a teenager from there without informing their counterparts in that state. "If the Bihar government tries to become a hurdle in the way of a police investigation, then my party would dub every Bihari in Maharashtra as an infiltrator and would force them to leave the state," Thackeray said.
