MVA declares ‘Halla Bol’ on CM Eknath Shinde government, Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari
Mumbai: The tripartite coalition of the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) on Saturday launched a protest march called ‘Halla Bol march’, across Mumbai, against the ruling Eknath Shinde government and Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari’s remarks on Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The foot march, which began from a company near J J Hospital at Byculla around noon, concluded at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) in south Mumbai.
Senior leaders from Congress, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), Shiv Sena (Thackeray faction) and several workers from Navi Mumbai, Raigadh, Pune and other parts participated in the march towards Mumbai. NCP chief Sharad Pawar arrived at the CSMT to address the rally. Senior leaders came down heavily against the remarks made by Governor Koshiyari. NCP leader Dilip Walse Patil stated that the Governor’s remarks were intolerable.
“The people of Maharashtra will not tolerate anything said against Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Dr Savitribai Phule and other great personalities. Our message to the Shinde govt is that they shouldn’t try to change the history of the state,” Patil said.
Meanwhile, Congress leader Balasaheb Thorat said that “Some of the major projects were taken away from Maharashtra and given to Gujarat, and BJP won the elections there. The people of Maharashtra will give a strong message to the BJP with their vote.”
Shiv Sena (Uddhav thackeray) spokesperson Sanjay Raut and NCP leader Supriya Sule were among those who participated in the rally.
