Maharashtra’s minister for minority affairs Naseem Khan on Wednesday wrote a letter to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati seeking land in Lucknow for building Maharashtra Bhavan.
“Lots of people from Maharashtra travel to Uttar Pradesh especially for religious purpose. They include Hindus, Muslims and Buddhists as places such as Ayodhya, Kashi, Sarnath and Faizabad are in that state. Maharashtra government can build a Maharashtra Bhavan to provide them cheaper accomodation,” Khan wrote in his letter to Mayawati.
Khan said he was making the demand on the occasion of Maharashtra state’s golden jubilee. “It will help build cordial relations between people from both the states,” he said.
