Nearly two months after the state saw the formation of the Eknath Shinde-Devendra Fadnavis government, Maharashtra is yet again witnessing the NCP-Shiv Sena-Congress alliance pitted against the ruling combine. The BJP has accused the former Maha Vikas Aghadi government of granting permission to build a memorial over the grave. By Thursday night, chief minister Shinde too had reacted. This was after Maharashtra BJP chief Chandrashekhar Bawankule made sharp comments against the former government.
Referring to the continued ancient flow of Indian consciousness, PM Narendra Modi said that India is not just a land mass but is an expression of civilisation, culture, harmony and possibilities. Modi said many other civilisations perished as they could not adapt to the changing times, but Indian civilisation has endured for thousands of years.
