Mumbai: Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) Chief Raj Thackeray has urged PM Narendra Modi to bring a 'Uniform Civil Code' and a 'Population Control Act' at the earliest. Along with this, Raj Thackeray has also demanded to change the name of Aurangabad to Sambhajinagar. Raj Thackeray has given this statement during his Pune visit on 22 May 2022 (Sunday).
Raj Thackeray said that, 'Our workers recited Hanuman Chalisa, then action was taken against them. When Rana couple read Hanuman Chalisa in front of Matoshree, they were arrested. What is Matoshree Masjid? Did Shiv Sainiks vote for this day?' Raj Thackeray accused Sharad Pawar that he considers Aurangzeb a saint. AIMIM is being used to polarize Hindu-Muslim in Maharashtra. Those who are offering flowers to the tomb of Aurangzeb, the enemy of Chhatrapati Shivaji, are not ashamed. History is not going to change due to someone saying and doing something.
According to media reports, Raj Thackeray made this statement at a rally organized at Ganesh Kala Kendra in Pune. In this rally, he also gave a statement on his proposed Ayodhya rally. He said, 'I had tweeted about the cancellation of my Ayodhya Yatra 2 days ago. I made the statement of Ayodhya Yatra deliberately. I wanted to see people's reaction to this visit. Some people are against my visit to Ayodhya. He wanted to fall into his trap. But I don't want to give anyone a chance to create controversy.
