Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshiyari found himself in a fresh controversy after he voiced that if those hailing from Rajasthani and Gujrati communities decided to leave Mumbai, it would not remain the financial capital of India, reports mentioned. 

Koshiyari was quoted in accounts elaborating on how he often tells people there that in Maharashtra, especially in Thane and Mumbai, if anyone asks Gujaratis and Rajasthanis to leave, no money will be left there. He added that Mumbai will no longer be the financial capital of India. 

Based on narratives, Koshiyari was speaking at a naming ceremony of a chowk in a western suburb of Mumbai. Reacting to this, Shiv Sena MP, Sanjay Raut took to Twitter to say, "Soon after the BJP-sponsored Chief Minister came to power, the Marathi man is getting insulted."

He added, "In short, Maharashtra and Marathi people are beggars... Even Morarji Desai did not insult 105 Marathi martyrs like this... Chief Minister Shinde...are you listening? That your Maharashtra is different. If you have a shred of self-respect, first ask for the Governor’s resignation.."

Earlier too, the Governor found himself in a pickle when after inaugurating four new buildings in Mumbai University, he requested the Chancellor to name the international student's hostel after Savarkar. However, it is believed that many student organisations opposed this recommendation and demanded that the hostel be named after Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
