Ruckus in M'rashtra Assembly over Savarkar honour

Mumbai, Feb 26 (TIWN) The Maharashtra Assembly witnessed noisy scenes on Wednesday after the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party demanded that Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray move a resolution honouring Veer Savarkar on his 54th death anniversary.

Several BJP members arrived in the Assembly donning caps with 'Mi Pan Savarkar' (Me Too Savarkar) and later, attempting to embarrass the ruling Shiv Sena, demanded a resolution to honour the Hindutva ideologue.  BJP senior leader Sudhir Mungantiwar had tabled the motion before Speaker Nana Patole, saying: "In the past few days, there have been several disgusting and unpalatable statements made against Veer Savarkar. There has been an attempt to create confusion and misguide people about his role in the freedom struggle in his birth state. February 26 is his death anniversary and the State Assembly must pass a motion in his honour."
