Rome, June 5 - The founder of the Northern League
on Wednesday lashed out again at the head of the regionalist
party in an ongoing internal spat.
"It's all rubbish," said Umberto Bossi, responding to
statement's from League Secretary and Lombardy Governor Roberto
Maroni, who said Bossi has been "damaging" to the party.
The founder of the Northern League sparked a party uproar
Tuesday when he said he should return to lead after calling
Maroni a "traitor" for allying too closely with ex-premier
Silvio Berlusconi and the center right, rather than focusing on
promoting regions in the north.
Signs of strain between the two surfaced shortly after
Bossi resigned in 2012 amid a corruption probe and Maroni took
over the party.
That July, when Maroni said Bossi only played an "emotional
role" in the party, Bossi shot back that "I'm the boss. There
are many small dogs who bark very loudly but don't frighten
anyone".
Verona Mayor Flavio Tosi, the head of the League's Veneto
region chapter, said Wednesday there was "zero chance Bossi
would retake (the reins of) the League".
Bossi replied that the future of the movement, which he had
spearheaded since its founding in the 1980s, and whether or not
his comments have hurt it, depended on "who the League runs in
(upcoming) local elections".
"It's all nonsense," he added.
