Mumbai. Politics has been hot on opening the temple in Maharashtra. There has been a stir in the political spheres over the letter written by the Governor to the Chief Minister for opening the temple and then the Chief Minister’s reply letter. The Shiv Sena has also demanded the President to pay attention to the matter and give the Governor the advice of the Constitution.
It is noteworthy that on Tuesday, the Governor wrote a letter to the state government asking for the temple to be opened. In this letter, the governor also taunted Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to leave secularism and be secular. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray also responded to this letter in the same tone. The Chief Minister said in a letter to the Governor that he should not teach any Hindutva. Hindutva is the soul of Shiv Sena and Shiv Sena never compromised on Hindutva for power. Uddhav Thackeray said that reverence is necessary, but concern for the health of people is more than reverence. There is also a thought to open a temple in the state.
Shiv Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut has described the Governor’s letter as being a blot of the Constitution. Raut said that the governor should not speak about unlock in the state. The Governor’s letter is the only one to invoke the Constitution. The President should inquire about this letter from the Governor himself.
Bharatiya Janata Party state president Chandrakant Patil said that the Chief Minister is misinterpreting the Governor’s letter. The language in which the Chief Minister has responded to the Governor is incorrect. The country is running from the constitution and Hinduism is absorbed in the secular itself. Keeping in mind the sentiments of the Hindu society, the Chief Minister should allow the opening of the temple by making rules. All people will follow the rules.
Leader of the Legislative Council, Leader of Opposition Praveen Darekar said that the manner in which the Chief Minister Uddhav Sarkar has responded to the Governor’s letter reflects the dictatorial attitude. The governor occupies a constitutional post, they should not be answered in this way. Darekar said that Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray is only concerned about saving his chair, he is no longer committed to the people of the state.
Food Minister Chhagan Bhujbal said that he has not seen the Governor’s letter but our constitution is based on secularism. Therefore, everyone should work within the same scope. Chhagan Bhujbal said that the state government is working within this scope. Corona infection is decreasing in the state, the government is going to decide on opening the temple, moving in the direction of Unlak.
Prakash Ambedkar, president of the deprived Bahujan Aghadi, said that the central government has issued a directive to open the temple. After this, why the state government is reluctant to open the temple, it is beyond comprehension. The state government is making excuses for Corona but everything has started in hotels, bars in the state. Prakash Ambedkar said that the letters of both the Governor and the Chief Minister in this regard are wrong, both should avoid correspondence in this way.
