New Delhi: Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray replied to Governor’s letter on Tuesday  over the issue of reopening of places of worship in the state.

In response to the Governor, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Tuesday said his Hindutva does not need verification from Koshyari.

“As imposing lockdown all of a sudden was not right, revoking it completely at once will also be not a good thing. And yes, I am someone who follows Hindutva, my Hindutva doesn’t need verification from you,” the Chief Minister said. Koshyari, through a letter written on Monday, had urged the Maharashtra CM to announce reopening of places of worship in the state.

He mentioned that religious places have reopened in Delhi, and across the nation, without any surge being witnessed in the COVID-19 cases, and had further questioned the motive behind delaying the same in Maharashtra.
