Raj Thackeray’s ultimatum

MNS chief Raj Thackeray said it was a “social problem, not a religious problem,” and confirmed that his party would not back down. Thackeray also threatened to play Hanuman Chalis on loudspeakers if the government refused to listen to him.
“Speakers in mosques should be closed by May 3, otherwise we will play Hanuman Chalisa in speakers. This is a social issue, not a religious one. I want to tell the state government that we will not return to this issue, do whatever you want to do,” said the chief. MNS Raj Thackeray.
However, in response to Thackeray’s ultimatum on the use of speakers in mosques, Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra Ajit Pawar said on Wednesday that Thackeray should not be given much importance. Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut also made it clear that no one had to teach his party about Hindutva after attacking MNS President Raj Thackeray after his meeting.

In addition, Raut claimed that the BJP used Raj Thackeray because he did not have the ability to face the MVA government.
Meanwhile, BJP MLA Nitesh Rane radiated joy that the head of MNS had finally accepted the BJP’s position. He told the media: “Raj Thackeray has taken this position along the BJP line. BJP leaders like Prasad Lad, Pravin Darekar and Mohit Kamboj have tackled the problem with speakers in different ways. MNS also liked this issue and therefore raised this issue after us. that Raj Thackeray has now begun to like the BJP’s position. ”
