Maharashtra Navnirman Sena Chief Raj Thackeray Proposed Ayodhya Visit Postponed


New Delhi: Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray’s visit to Ayodhya has been cancelled due to health reasons. Thackeray was supposed to visit Ayodhya on June 5. 

Thackeray was on a visit to Pune in the past few days from where he returned to Mumbai due to health issues. According to ABP News sources, Thackeray has got an injury in his leg which might need surgery. Although, the information will be shared by Thackeray only after consultation with his doctor. According to a report by news agency ANI, he will share more information about his visit on May 22 during his Pune rally. 

Meanwhile, there were protests going on in Ayodhya against Thackeray’s visit. The Saints and Mahants had held a roadshow in Ayodhya and demanded an apology from Thackeray for his comments against North Indians in the past. 

BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh had said earlier this week that Thackeray will not be allowed in Ayodhya till he tenders a public apology for his comments in north Indians. 

“Raj Thackeray has been insulting North Indians right from 2008. He did not spare even pregnant women and students. We welcome his change of heart but he should first apologise. If he has a problem with apologising to the people, let him apologise to the Saints so that he will not repeat this mistake in the future. If he fails to apologise, forget Uttar Pradesh, we will not even allow him to set his foot in places like Jharkhand and Bihar too,” Singh was quoted as saying by news agency IANS. 

The announcement for the tour was made by Thackeray in Pune on April 17 when he said that he will visit Ayodhya on June 5 to take blessings from Lord Ram.
