Bhagat Singh Koshyari ready to resign as Maharashtra Governor?
Mumbai: Bhagat Singh Koshyari resign from the post of Governor of Maharashtra? Such a possibility is being expressed. And this news is getting viral very fast. Regarding the news, when the phone was called twice on Koshyari ji’s number, he did not pick up.
Let us tell you that if we look at the events in Maharashtra only 15 to 20 days back, then it will not be difficult to understand why efforts are being made to corner Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on one of his statements? Which was like this, ‘when we used to study, in middle school, high school, our teachers used to ask us, who is your favorite leader? At that time, whoever liked Subhash Chandra Bose, who liked Jawaharlal Nehru, or whom Mahatma Gandhi liked, we used to call him our hero. But I feel if someone asks you ‘Who is your icon, who is your favorite hero’, then there is no need for you to go out. You will get it right here in Maharashtra. Shivaji is a thing of the old era, I am talking about the new era, you will find it here, from Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar to Nitin Gadkari, you will find your icons here.‘
Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari had said this in Aurangabad in the past, on which a ruckus was created and it continued for several days. After all, how did Bhagat Singh Koshyari insult Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, the founder of the Maratha Empire? Certainly confusion often arises in the use of certain words in Hindi and Marathi. But here, in what the Governor said, there is not even an iota of sense of insult to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj anywhere. He didn’t say anywhere that Shivaji is a thing of the old era, we should stop believing him. He has also nowhere said about not following the views of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
Yes, the names of some ideals of the new era have definitely been mentioned. Among them, one name is of Babasaheb Ambedkar, and the other is of Nitin Gadkari. So isn’t Babasaheb Ambedkar the ‘icon’ of today’s era? In his statement, the Governor has praised Maharashtra by saying that the people of Maharashtra do not need to look outside to find their ideal. There are many ideals here. As the Governor said that in his time some liked Subhash Chandra Bose, some Nehru, some Gandhi. In the same way even today someone considers Shiv Sena founder Balasaheb Thackeray as his ideal, while someone considers Lata Mangeshkar or Sachin Tendulkar.
