Mumbai: In the Hanuman Chalisa controversy, Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray's challenge to read Hanuman Chalisa in Kashmir has been accepted by Navneet Rana, an independent MP from Amravati. Navneet Rana accepted the challenge and said, "Kashmir is a part of India and if Chief Minister Uddhav thinks that it is difficult to recite Hanuman Chalisa there, then I will definitely go and recite it."
In one of his interviews, Navneet Rana has attacked Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray a lot. He said that the Chief Minister addressed the gathering in Aurangabad yesterday. In this address, where he as Chief Minister should have talked about the problems of the people of Aurangabad, he was challenging me to go to Kashmir and recite Hanuman Chalisa. He said that in this meeting he did not talk about the problems of Aurangabad.
Navneet further said that, Uddhav says that it is not necessary to go to the temple... it is not necessary to read Hanuman Chalisa... so how do you say that you represent "Hindutva". Navneet said that the people of Aurangabad are worried about water; the Chief Minister did not mention about it in the meeting yesterday. At the same time, while discussing the target killing and Kashmiri Pandits in Kashmir, Navneet Rana said that the country's PM and Home Minister Amit Shah is with the people of the country. This government will take every step for the security of the country and the people and the people of the country have faith in this and will stand by them.
