Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief and founder Raj Thackeray has announced his support for the government's decision to allow Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in multi-brand retail, but said that he would support it only if he wants Maharashtrians were given jobs in the outlets in the state.

Speaking to reporters in Mumbai on 18 September 2012, Raj Thackeray said, "I will write to FDI retailers asking them to employ Marathi youth. People from outside shouldn't be employed there. Maharashtra will not tolerate migrants getting jobs in retail shops. FDI in retail should come in the country and I took the decision after deliberation. I fully support FDI," he said.
