Intensifying its demand for Bal Thackeray's memorial at Shivaji Park in Mumbai, Shiv Sena today said the party would not budge from its stand irrespective of legal implications.


"We don't care if any law is coming in the way to raise Balasaheb's memorial at Shivaji Park," said senior party leader and former Maharashtra chief minister Manohar Joshi.

He was speaking to reporters here after attending a condolence meeting at Kalidas auditorium here.

Joshi was the first leader to raise the demand for late Thackeray's memorial at Shivaji Park ground where the Shiv Sena supremo used to address party rallies.

Joshi was referring to chief minister Prithviraj Chavan's statement that the state government would not do anything in violation of the law with regard to Shiv Sena's demand to set up the memorial.

"Nothing will be done which will violate the law," Chavan had said, adding he has not received any proposal for a memorial for the late leader so far.
