Uddhav demands Kendra Koshyari’s recall, calling the Governor an ‘Amazon parcel’

Mumbai: Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) chief Uddhav Thackeray on Thursday called Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari an ‘Amazon parcel’ and demanded the central government to recall him.

Thackeray’s remarks come after Koshyari last week described Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj as a symbol of the “olden days” and instead called Dr BR Ambedkar and Union minister Nitin Gadkari “symbols of modern times”.

“I request the central government to take back the Amazon parcels which he has sent as governor and send them to other places or old age homes,” Thackeray was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

“We ask all Maharashtra lovers to oppose his statement, even welcome BJP members if they want to join,” he added.

“Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is being insulted and the government is sitting silent. I do not understand who is the CM. But what will a person, who is in power with the help of Delhi, say against them,” Thackeray said, taking a dig at CM Eknath Shinde.

The governor’s statement during an event in Aurangabad drew criticism from all parties, including the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP).

Earlier on Thursday, NCP chief Sharad Pawar criticized Koshyari’s statement and said that he had ‘crossed all limits’.

He said, ‘When I heard his comment about Shiv Chhatrapati… Now he has crossed all limits. He had praised Shivaji Maharaj yesterday, but realized it too late. I think the President and the Prime Minister should take a decision (about Koshyari). Such people should not be given important posts.

The NCP supremo said that the post of governor represents an institution and to maintain the dignity of that post, we had not made any comment against Koshyari earlier.
