RR Patil should quit over Mumbai violence: Uddhav Thackeray
Mumbai: Shiv Sena executive president, Uddhav Thackeray, has said that after Mumbai Police Commissioner Arup Patnaik’s resignation in the wake of August 11 violence, it is the turn of Maharashtra Home Minister RR Patil to resign.
Speaking to Vijay Shekhar, Zee News’ Mumbai bureau chief, Uddhav said that to prevent recurrence of such instances, there should be a fear of the government and establishment.
Speaking on the issue of August 11 violence, he said that everyone needs to come forward and speak up. “Why is no one saying anything about the incident? If Shiv Sena is coming out and talking about it, then why is everyone else quiet? Everyone should come forward and speak about it,” Uddhav said.
“We can arm people with weapons like done by the Scotland Yard, but how will you arm them with courage?,” he said.
He further said that talking about Hindutva does not mean that “we are against Muslims”.
