Sena slams Guv

A week after Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray lashed out at Governor K. Sankarnarayanan for “Mumbai for all” remark, his son and party executive president Uddhav Thackeray met Sankarnarayan asking an extension of term of the Statutory Development Boards in Maharashtra by five years.

The Shiv Sena had decided last Friday to begin a campaign on ‘unified Maharashtra’ in Vidarbha from March 15 and had said that they would meet the governor demanding extension of statutory boards.

The Shiv Sena had last week demanded that Chief Minister Ashok Chavan write to the Centre asking it to recall governor K. Sankaranarayanan over his remarks that anybody can live in Mumbai.

The Shiv Sena has termed it a conspiracy of some politicians in Delhi to separate Mumbai from the rest of the state.
