uddhav thackeray said this man is an amazon parcel  find out who

In a savage attack at the Centre, Uddhav Thackrey on Thursday appealed to take back the Amazon parcel which they have sent in the form of Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari.


The statement was a dig at the Maharashtra Governor’s remarks, who earlier termed Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj an old ‘idol’.

Talking to a news agency, ANI, Thackeray has asked the Central government to take this sample back or to either send him to old age home. He then threatened to stage protests across the state if the Governor was not removed from office. Such a verbal slip-up cannot occur frequently. Maharashtra won’t submit quietly, and the Central Government needs to understand that, Thackrey said.


Shivaji Maharaj, an old icon: Koshyari

Maharashtra Governor, Bhagat Singh Koshyari, in a recent programme at Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University had said that if someone asked, who your idol was, you don’t have to go out and search for one. Instead you’ll find these idols right here in Maharashtra. Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj has become an old idol now, you can find new idols like Babasaheb Ambedkar and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, Koshyari said.

Governor Koshyari’s remark did not land well

However, the Sena leaders, who denounced the governor’s words, said he was infamous for mocking great leaders.

Sharad Pawar, the leader of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), said that when he heard Koshyari’s remarks against Chhatrapati Shivaji, he realised that the Governor had gone too far this time.

Even as he lauded Shivaji Maharaj, but it was too late to realise this. Pawar added that he believed that a decision should be made by the President and the Prime Minister and such individuals shouldn’t be given important positions.

On Monday, Chief Minister Eknath Shinde’s faction’s Shiv Sena MLA Sanjay Gaikwad also urged that Koshyari be sent out of the state.

MLA Shinde said that the governor needs to realise that Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s values are timeless and that he cannot be compared to any other great person in history. Shinde has urged the BJP leaders in the Centre to send someone else if they are unfamiliar with the state’s history and current operations.

Shiv Sena leaders’ sentiments were echoed by BJP MP Udayanraje Bhosale, a Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj descendant, who criticised Koshyari and party colleague Sudhanshu Trivedi for allegedly making offensive remarks about the well-known 17th-century King.
