‘Sena to continue its fight for Marathi Manoos`

Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray Thursday said that his party will continue its struggle for the cause of `Marathi Manoos`.

Mumbai: Lashing out at a section of the
media for `creating misunderstanding` about his party in the eyes of Marathi speaking people, Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray Thursday asserted that the outfit has always carried
out its struggle for the cause of `Marathi Manoos`.

"Shiv Sena always struggled for the cause of the Marathi
Manoos but a section of media always targetted the Sena," Thackeray said in party mouthpiece `Saamana` today.
He however said that "no matter how much they are
criticised but to benefit `Marathi Manoos` and Maharashtra,
Sena will carry on its battle."

Reiterating that Sena never opposed to the renaming of
Marathwada University after B R Ambedkar, Thackeray said that
by considering the historical importance he directed that the
name Marathawada should be retained.

He also said that "Dalit leader R S Gavai and NCP leader
and Union Minister Sharad Pawar are witness to the
development."

Thackeray urged the two leaders to clarify the issue.

Spelling out his stand on the womens` reservation issue,
Thackeray said the government must make it mandatory for
political parties to reserve half of the total number of seats
they contest for women.

Speaking on caste-based womens` reservation, he said if a
party does not find a suitable women candidate belonging to a
particular caste then it will have to suffer politically
in that particular ward.
