A delegation of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena leaders met Maharashtra Governor S C Jamir on Monday, requesting him to restore 'Z' category security of MNS chief Raj Thackeray [Images].
"We have requested to give 'Z' category security to Raj Thackeray, in the wake of continuous threats to him," MNS leader Shishir Shinde, who led the delegation, told PTI.
Raj's security was withdrawn by the state government, the delegation told Jamir and requested him to direct the Congress-NCP government to restore the MNS leader's security.
The Governor assured the delegation of taking up Raj's security issue with the state government.
"It should be the endeavour of political parties to respect the sentiments of every citizen and maintain the unity and integrity of the country," the Governor told the delegation.
