The party workers of Shiv Sena staged a demonstration outside the
offices of FM Radio channels Red FM and Radio Mirchi in Mumbai
yesterday, demanding the channels to adhere to the dictates of its
chief Bal Thackeray and play Marathi songs.
Red FM has agreed to play Marathi songs but has sought more
time, as its main office is located in Chennai. However, Radio
Mirchi has promised to start playing Marathi songs in its channel
The political outfit alleged that the Maharashtrians should not
be deprived of listening to Marathi songs, as some radio channels
play all types of songs including Bollywood and western but not
Marathi. It is said that Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray had earlier
sent warning to radio stations to start playing Marathi songs
within a week time.
