Maharashtra is No One's Personal Property: Priya Dutt
In an oblique reference to the MNS, AICC General Secretary and a member of the Youth Congress in-charge of Rahul Gandhi's brigade, Priya Dutta, MP, today said that Maharashtra was "no one's personal property" and people from any state had the constitutional right "to stay, work and live there."

Addressing a meeting after launching the Youth Congress membership drive for Begusarai and Khagari Lok Sabha constituencies in Bihar, Dutt said Maharashtra is no one's personal property and people have the constitutional right to stay.

Dutt, however, did not name the Maharashtra Navanirman Sena or its supremo Raj Thackeray whose oft repeated anti-Bihari remarks are well known.

Brushing aside Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's allegation that whenever Congress came to power, prices of essential commodities had escalated, she linked the price rise to subsidy granted to farmers saying "enhanced subsidy to farmers has been responsible for the price rise."

Referring to the drive launched at the initiative of Rahul Gandhi, Dutt said the AICC General Secretary wanted "democracy in the party by enrolling youths for further strengthening the organisation."
