Union Home Minister Amit Shah has slammed Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari for his controversial remarks in a recent letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. Shah opined that Koshyari should have shown more restraint in the choice of words he used in the letter.
When questioned about Governor Koshyari's 'secular' remark to Uddhav Thackeray, Amit Shah replied, "I have gone through the letter. He has made a passing reference. However, I also feel that he should have been more restrained in the choice of his words."
Bhagat Singh Koshyari had recently stirred a controversy when he wrote a letter to the Maharashtra CM seeking reopening of places of worship in the state. In the letter, the Governor questioned the delay in reopening of temples and asked if Uddhav Thackeray had "suddenly turned secular".
During his TV interview, Amit Shah also shed light on the Sushant Singh Rajput's death and the controversies that ensued following his sudden demise.
