“If loudspeakers aren’t removed from May 4…” Raj Thackeray issues ultimatum to MVA gov
MNS Chief Raj Thackeray, on Sunday issued an ultimatum to the Maha Vikas Agadi government to remove the loudspeakers atop the Mosque.
Raj Thackeray, the chief of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena, addressing a rally on Sunday, warned the Shiv-Sena led Maha Vikas Agadi government and asked them to remove loudspeakers from the Mosque. He also issued a stern warning to the ruling dispensation and stated that if loudspeakers were not removed from atop mosques, MNS workers would play the Hanuman Chalisa. He, while addressing the crowd, also said that if the government does not start removing the speakers from May 4, then we won’t keep quiet.
He further added, “What happens after that in Maharashtra, I don’t know. I want to tell the cops here (to) go out and start removing these loudspeakers right now.” Taking the Hanuman Chalisa row further, he added, “We should play Hanuman Chalisa at double the volume of loudspeakers atop the mosques. If they (Muslims) don’t understand nicely, we will show them the power of Maharashtra.”
Today is first day of Maharashtra (Maharashtra Day). I won't listen from 4th day from now. Wherever we'll see a loudspeaker, we'll also chant Hanuman Chalisa in front of the loudspeaker. I request Police to stop loudspeakers. If they won't listen, we'll take action: Raj Thackeray pic.twitter.com/ojXCCGZ0Xf

Recently, Raj also praised the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government for issuing an order to remove the loudspeakers from all the religious places and successfully implementing the order. Once again praising the UP government, Raj said “If UP can do it then why cannot Maharashtra.”
Barely a few hours after the Raj issued an ultimatum against the state government, sources in the MVA government have revealed that the ultimatum by Thackeray is merely a ‘threat’ and that the government will allow no disturbance to law and order. As per media reports, the state government sources also informed that steps will be taken after a brief discussion with Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.
