In Maharashtra, the loud-mouth Maharashtra Navnirman Sena Chief Raj Thackeray finds a jolly good friend in Shinde government who is taking no time to obey what comes from the mouth of MNS Chief ever since the new government begins ruling the state with the blessings of BJP in the Centre.
A day after the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) staff removed an alleged structure off Mahim coast area in Mumbai after the MNS leader raise a finger towards the same alleging that few people are trying to construct a Dargah at the site with a malafide intention, he raised another issue of loudspeakers over mosques in Maharashtra on Thursday asking the Shinde government to take appropriate action or else the MNS will built a Ganapati temple at the same location.
Finding fault with the Shinde government for not taking action against the use of loudspeakers, Raj Thackeray on Thursday said, “You must take a call over the (loudspeaker) issue as soon as possible. I will meet you to discuss the issue very soon and remind you about the necessity to take a decision in the matter.”
Apart from this, he further said, a total number of seventeen thousand cases have been booked against the members of MNS during the campaign against the use of loudspeakers from mosques in the state. All these cases should be withdrawn at the earliest.
Reminding that Balasaheb was promised to act tough against the use of loudspeakers from mosques, Raj Thackeray said, “Shinde government secured both the name as well as the Dhanush Baand (a symbol of arrow and bow) of Shiv Sena and it is the right time to act.”
“Either the Shinde government will take tough action against the loudspeakers as a mark of respect to the promise made by Bala Saheb Thackeray or else allow us to do it on our own.
According to political experts, while Shinde conspired against former Chief Minister and Shiv Sena Chief Udhav Thackeray and toppled his government with the help of BJP, the MNS leader Raj Thackeray is aspiring to make his party second in the row after the ruling government only to send Udhav Thackeray’s political career into oblivion.
