RJD supremo Lalu Prasad has called up prime minister Manmohan Singh seeking his immediate intervention to get Maharashtra government’s decision on giving licence to those who are domicile of that state for the last 15 years rescinded.

“I spoke to prime minister over telephone late last evening and requested him to get the Maharashtra cabinet decision rescinded as it is not good for the country’s unity and integrity”, Mr. Prasad told PTI on Friday.

He said, prime minister assured him of doing the needful in this connection.

The Maharashtra government’s decision is an attack on the federal structure of the constitution and would have far reaching repercussions on other states, Mr. Prasad told Mr. Singh.

The constitution provides for every citizen of the country the right to move and settle in any part of the country in search of job, he added.
