Mumbai: The Maharashtra government on Sunday informed the Legislative Council that it will initiate steps will be taken to stop the construction of memorial of Nathuram Godse coming up in adjoining Kalyan’s Saparde village will be stopped.
Congress MLC Sanjay Dutt raised the issue and demanded to stop construction of Godse’s memorial. Dutt said that after coming to power promising ‘Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas’, the mask of the ruling regime was being replaced with their true face coming forth, which proved that for them it was actually ‘ Munn pe Ram, Dil mein Nathuram’.
Dutt stated that the fascist forces who killed Mahatma Gandhi are now blatantly raising their heads once again against Bapu’s ideals and teachings, while the government was consciously turning a blind eye to it. Dutt asserted that Congress along with all secular forces will not allow it to so happen, no matter what.
Nathuram’s memorial coming up in Kalyan is a blot on Maharashtra and sends a very wrong message across India and even internationally. Hence the government should immediately intervene to stop it and also take strict action against those initiating so, as also against those government authorities who have failed to take prompt action in the matter.
