Union home minister Amit Shah has said Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari should have his chosen his words carefully in the letter he wrote to the western state’s chief minister Uddhav Thackeray over the issue of reopening of religious places amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“I have read the letter. He has made a passing reference. I believe some restraint could have been exercised,” Shah said in an interview to News18 Group on Saturday in Hindi.
Koshyari had written to Thackeray last week raising the issue of reopening of places of worship in Maharashtra. “I wonder if you are receiving any divine premonition to keep postponing the reopening of the places of worship time and again or have you suddenly turned ‘secular ‘ yourselves, the term you hated?” Koshyari asked Thackeray in his letter.
