'Power comes and goes': MNS chief Raj Thackeray writes to Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray


Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray on Tuesday wrote to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray slamming him for using the state police to arrest activists of the former’s party in connection to the Hanuman Chalisa row. He said the power comes and goes, and no one including Uddhav Thackeray would stay in the government. 

“I have only one thing to say to the state government; Do not test our patience. Power comes and goes. No one has a copper plate of power. Not even you Uddhav Thackeray!” said the MNS chief on Twitter. 

“My party workers were detained even before the agitation started. 28 thousand MNS workers were served notices from the police while thousands were jailed. They (MVA government) did all this since they want loudspeakers to be used. These loudspeakers cause noise pollution,” said Raj Thackeray.

Raj Thackeray also reiterated that his party will continue to object against the use of loudspeaker until the government takes appropriate action. 

In his letter to the Chief Minister, Raj Thackeray raised questions on Maha Vikas Agadhi (MVA) government and asked if the ‘arrest drive’ was run in the mosques that shelter terrorists. 

He wrote, “The manner in which Maharashtra government is detaining MNS workers through State Police force…”

“My question to the state government is: Have they ever acted against mosques which hide weapons and terrorists? The police is after our party workers including Sandeep Deshpande and others as if they are terrorists from Pakistan,” asked Raj Thackeray. 

Tension over the Hanuman Chalisa row has been gripping the state after the MNS chief issued warning to the state government for the removal of loudspeakers from mosques. 

Earlier, Thackeray stressed upon the nature of the issue. He said it is not a religious issue but a national one.
