"Balasaheb Thackeray will be showering flowers on us": Shiv Sena's Sanjay Raut


Reacting to Union Minister Ashwini Kumar Choubey’s remark on Balasaheb Thackerey, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said the late party chief (Balasaheb Thackerey) will be showering flowers upon us (Shiv Sena). 

Raut said, “Balasaheb Thackeray doesn’t have to worry about who we are at present. Shiv Sena fighting against those who plan to divide the country by causing riots in name of Hanuman Chalisa. At this time, Balasaheb Thackeray will be showering flowers on us.”

Speaking on the Hanuman Chalisa row, Raut said, “You reap what you sow. This is the religion and nature of Shiv Sena. We always give the same answer. The party leaders held a meeting yesterday. Some suggestions are given, and the instructions will be followed properly.” 

Raut further said that a conspiracy is being hatched to defame Shiv Sena in the name of caste and religion. He said, “On this, all I have to say is that Shiv Sena is ready to face any situation. Anyone can come forward in this row. Shiv Sena is a party that is attacking the chest and attacking from the front to the ones involved in this matter.” 

Raut said that the state government has exercised restraints in some respects. “However, if the water goes above our head, then others too will have to drown in that water. We do not fight with guns on the shoulders of others.”

Ealier on Friday, Union Minister Ashwini Kumar Choubey took potshots at the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maharashtra government over ‘arresting people for reciting Hanuman Chalisa.’ 

“Of late, I have seen here that arrests were made for reciting the Hanuman Chalisa or taking the name of Lord Ram. The soul of Thackeray saheb (late Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray) would have been hurt,” the BJP leader said, speaking to reporters here.

Meanwhile, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray, on April 13, warned about removing loudspeakers from the religious places, specially from the mosque till May 3. 

The MNS chief asked the Hindus to “wait till May 3” and play Hanuman Chalisa thereafter in front of the mosques that “don’t take down the loudspeakers”.
