Terming the UPA's handling of the current unrest in Kashmir valley as "cowardly", the Shiv Sena on Friday said people were fed up with the "hollow" discussions being held by the Centre over the prolonged crisis.
"The UPA government is just holding discussions on the Kashmir issue. I think its a cowardly act," Sena's Executive President Uddhav Thackeray said at the launch of a website on his grandfather and social reformist Prabodhankar Thackeray.
Claiming that people were fed up with these "hollow" talks, Uddhav said there was need to convey this message to the government.
On allegations about his family being from outside Maharashtra, the Sena leader said Prabodhankar was born in neighbouring Panvel and not in Madhya Pradesh.
"The website has specifically mentioned that Prabodhankar was born in Panvel. Is Panvel in Madhya Pradesh?" he asked.
He refused to comment on the Ayodhya title suits on which Allahabad High Court's verdict is scheduled to be pronounced on September 24.
"Let the verdict come. We have faith in the judiciary and God. Everything would be all right," he said.
The website named Prabodhankar.co is so designed as to make the younger generation aware of his works, a release from Sena said.
The site would contain books written by Prabodhankar, his unpublished articles, biography in English and Hindi and also material written on him.
It would also carry interviews of Prabodhankar's contemporaries, clippings from cinemas he acted in and wallpapers.
