When will government erect the Shivaji memorial: Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil
SHARES

On the occasion of Shivaji Jayanti (birth anniversary), Leader of opposition (LoP) Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi mentioning about the state's ambitious memorials, one of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar and the other - Shivaji Maharaj.

"It's been two years, the state laid the foundation stone of Shivaji Maharaj's memorial and three years ago, laid the foundation stone of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, but nothing after that. When is the state going to build these memorials," Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, LoP.

Vikhe-Patil added that during Magnetic Maharashtra conclave, India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi promised that soon the memorial of Shivaji Maharaj will be ready. Vikhe-Patil alleged that Modi deliberately mentioned about the memorial considering Shivaji Jayanti. He further said that Modi did not even mention about Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar.

"As elections are nearing, Modi's government is talking about memorials. They are not concerned about the memorials but they are simply playing politics," Vikhe-Patil.


Pulled down banners of Shivaji Maharaj's animated movie

Vikhe-Patil pointed out that the government pulled down posters of an animated movie based on Shivaji Maharaj to put up posters of Magnetic Maharashtra conclave which has the picture of Narendra Modi.

"It is a sad thing. It's high time, we should pull this government down from their throne," Vikhe-Patil.
