Hitting out at Shiv Sena patriarch Bal Thackeray and his family members for targetting Bihari migrants in Maharashtra, Rashtriya Janata Dal chief chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Sunday claimed that the Thackerays were infiltrators as their forefathers had hailed from Bihar.

"The forefathers of the Thackerays hailed from Bihar and migrated to Mumbai   generations ago as has been corroborated by a book written by a late Thackeray family member," he told PTI.

"If the Bihari migrants are infiltrators in Mumbai as described by Sena leaders and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray, then the Thackerays themselves are infiltrators," Prasad claimed.

Thackerays should stop calling Bihari migrants as infiltrators as their Bihari ancestry has been proved or otherwise they should confront the prospect of being thrown out of Mumbai, he said.

It may be mentioned that senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh had quoted from a book written by MNS chief's grandfather Prabodhankar Thackeray stating that Thackerays' ancestors were natives of Magadh region of Bihar before shifting from one place to another and finally settling down in Maharashtra.

MNS chief Raj Thackeray had retaliated and debunked the Congress leader's remarks.
