Mumbai – Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari wrote a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Monday. In the letter, he demanded the reopening of temples in the state. He also underlined the issue of Shiv Sena’s Hindutva in this very well written letter.
Besides, the governor raised the question in the letter whether the word “secular” which you used to hate has now taken the same role. He asked in the letter that the temples should be allowed to reopen with all caution against the backdrop of the corona virus. Bars, restaurants and beaches are open. But, on the other hand, the gods and goddesses have to live in lockdown, said the governor sarcastically.
The Chief Minister has strongly responded to the Governor’s letter to Hindutva. My Hindutva does not need your certificate. Also, I don’t need to learn it from anyone, is the unequivocal answer given by the Chief Minister.
‘Did I suddenly become secular? Why should we ask such a question? Are we saying that only opening places of worship is Hindutva and not opening them is secular? So don’t you agree that the important core of the incident in which you took the oath of office is secular ?, ‘the Chief Minister has asked the Governor.
The BJP leaders have come to the defense of the governor with a resounding reply given to him. BJP leader Kirit Somaiya targeted Uddhav Thackeray. Uddhav Thackeray made a big compromise for the post of Chief Minister. Similarly, Uddhav Thackeray is angry about everything as the situation in the state has got out of hand due to Corona. That is why he lost his balance while replying to the governor’s letter. I have sympathy for the Chief Minister. However, when talking to an elderly person like the Governor, Uddhav Thackeray used egoistic language, how appropriate is it, Kirit Somaiya raised the question while talking to TV9 Marathi.
