Terming the recent attacks allegedly carried out by activists of Shiv Sena (SS)and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS)in Mumbai, as "sheer goondaism", Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh on Sunday  said that Bal Thackeray and Raj Thackeray were not above the law. 

"The recent Shiv Sena attack on a media house and MNS's violent acts in Maharashtra Assembly were "sheer goondaism" and Bal Thackeray and Raj Thackeray were not above the law," Singh told reporters here. 

To a poser, former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Singh said that such violent acts should be dealt with strictly. 

Asked to comment over reports that Madhya Pradesh Congress President Suresh Pachouri had punched a party worker last night at the airport here after he was mobbed by Congressmen demanding ticket for the next month's civic bodies poll in the state, Singh in a lighter vein asked the mediapersons not to meddle in the affairs between Pachouri and partymen. 

The incident of pushing and jostling at the airport, was being blown out of proportion, he said.  PTI
