Statements of hope create rifts in society. The way of using Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s name to bring it into discussion should stop somewhere. Shivendraraje Bhosale said that the responsible persons should speak with the awareness of the society. We should speak thinking about what we say, what is its message. No one should make controversial statements about Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. MLA Shivendraraj Bhosale said that as a Marathi person or as a member of the royal family, I am appealing to everyone to say Shivpremi.
If the program is on history, we can understand the discussion on it. But the name of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj should be stopped in any Utsooth program. Because it says something, which should continue to be discussed. Or that should make the news. This is all wrong. Shivendraraje Bhosale clearly said that it is our expectation that this should not happen.
What did the governor say?
We were studying in school. So we ask our teachers who is your favorite leader? Then those who liked Subhash Chandra Bose, those who liked Gandhiji and those who liked Nehru used to take their names. Now I feel like… Who asked you who is your icon? Who is your favorite leader? So you don’t need to go outside Maharashtra. You will find many icons in Maharashtra itself. Shivaji Maharaj belongs to the old era. I am talking about the modern era. Dr. From Ambedkar to Dr. Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has said that till Nitin Gadkari you will all meet here. Accusations and counter-accusations have started all over the state of Maharashtra based on the statement made by Bhagatsinh Koshyari.
