Don’t Need Hindutva Certificate, Says Uddhav Thackeray About Maharashtra Governor’s Letter
Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari requested Uddhav Thackeray to reopen religious places of worship in the state in his letter.
On Tuesday (October 13), Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray responded strongly to a letter sent to him by state Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari. The governor requested Uddhav Thackeray to reopen religious places of worship in the state in his letter. Koshyari wrote, “You have been a strong votary of Hindutva. You had publicly expressed your devotion for Lord Ram. You had visited Vitthal Rukmani Temple on Ashadi Ekadashi.” “I wonder if you are receiving any premonition to keep postponing the reopening of the places of worship time and again or have you suddenly turned secular?” Koshyari asked in the letter.
In response, Uddhav Thackeray said, “I don’t need a certificate from you about my Hindutva.” Further taking a dig at the state administration, Bhagat Singh Koshyari said it is “ironical” that the Maharashtra government has reopened bars and restaurants but has not taken a call on reopening religious places of worship. “I request you to announce forthwith the reopening of all the places of worship with necessary COVID-19 precautions,” Koshyari added.
