Opposing RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat's statement that "Mumbai is for all Indians", a top Shiv Sena leader on Sunday  said the city belongs to Marathi people only. 

"The time has come to remind RSS that Mumbai belongs to Marathi people only and they should get priority here," Shiv Sena leader Manohar Joshi told reporters in Mumbai. Mumbai's glory is due to hard work of the Marathi people here and they have full right over the city, the former Lok Sabha Speaker said. 

"Mumbai is for all Indians. People of all languages, communities, tribes are children of India...Nobody can prevent Indians from moving to any part of the country in search of employment," Bhagwat had said yesterday. PTI
