Several leaders of Shiv Sena and Congress have criticised Bhagat Singh Kohisyari’s remarks.
New Delhi: A speech has landed Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshiyari in a controversy after he said that the state will have no money left if the Gujaratis and Rajasthanis are taken out.
“If Gujaratis and Rajasthanis are removed from Maharashtra, especially Mumbai and Thane, no money would be left here,” Koshiyari was heard saying. He further said, “Mumbai would not be able to remain the financial capital of the country.”
Several leaders of Shiv Sena and Congress have criticised Kohisyari’s remarks. Senior Shiv Sena leader and MP Sanjay Raut said the Governor insulted the hard-working Marathi people.
“Soon after the BJP sponsored Chief Minister came to power, the marathi man is getting insulted,” Raut said in a tweet in Marathi on Saturday. Congress leaders Jairam Ramesh and Sachin Sawant also tweeted a video and said the governor should not have made such remarks.
