I don’t need a certificate on Hindutva from you: Uddhav Thackeray

Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray came down heavily on Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Tuesday following the latter’s letter to the CM over the reopening of temples in the state amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Governor had ridiculed Thackeray’s decision to reopen bars and restaurants in the state, and not temples or places of worship.

The Shiv Sena chief slammed Koshyari’s remarks and said that he fails to understand the Hindutva ideology of the Governor after the latter invited over a person who equated Mumbai with Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. In a veiled reference to Kangana Ranaut, he said that people who called Maharashtra and the Sena-led state administration ‘PoK’ were welcomed, and that does not fit into his definition or understanding of Hindutva.
