Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray while addressing in a programme organised in the memory of Vinayak Damodar Savarkar said that Veer Savarkar must be conferred the Bharat Ratna. Thackeray said this in Savarkar Sahitya Sammelan held in Thane.
Thackeray said, “I am coming to this seminar third time, but I can’t claim that I have understood Savarkar very well. We are fortunate enough that a legend of such stature was born in our nation but we never followed his thoughts.
Thackeray stated that we all are together in demanding Bharat Ratna for Savarkar and some leaders from Opposition also want that. We should now act to make this reality.Everyone should be aware of the contribution of Savarkar towards the Hindu Rashtra and the freedom struggle.
