Former Minister Ganesh Naik has broken his silence on Bhavkaleshwar temple that was demolished last year on an order passed in petition filed by social activist Sandeep Thakur. This happened in the backdrop of a book printed by a NCP worker Shirish Veta that tells the story of how Bhavkaleshwar temple was demolished and also shows a cartoon depicting that Uddhav Thackeray was behind it. Ganesh Naik informed the media that the book was printed before Mahashivratri this year.
“UDDHAV THACKERAY WAS BEHIND DEMOLISHING BHAVKALESHWAR TEMPLE”
In this press conference called prior to the election code of conduct, in a fit of complete rage Ganesh Naik alleged that Uddhav Thackeray was behind demolishing Bhavkaleshwar temple even as Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis did attempt saving it.
“UDDHAV THACKERAY’S FAITH IN GOD IS FAKE”
Ganesh Naik’s anger outburst on Uddhav Thackeray continued as he said that his faith was fake. Ganesh Naik said that on one side he wants to save Ayodhya temple and on another he demolished Bhavkaleshwar temple.
“OPPONENTS ANGER FOR GANESH NAIK WAS TAKEN OUT ON BHAVKALESHWAR”
Ganesh Naik confessed that he met Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on the issue of Bhavkaleshwar but despite that, the anger and hatred his opponents have for Ganesh Naik was taken out on the temple. He challenged Uddhav Thackeray to come clean on his role in demolishing Bhavkaleshwar temple.
“WOULD HAVE MADE SLUMS FOR VOTE BANKS IF I WANTED TO ENCROACH LAND”
Ganesh Naik said that if they had any selfish interest to grab land, they would have built slums that could be used as vote banks and not a temple.
“I DARE SHIV SENA TO PURSUE COMPLAINT ON BOOK PRINTED ON BHAVKALESHWAR TEMPLE”
Earlier the same day, Shiv Sena had called for a press conference in which arch rival Vijay Nahata had informed the media that they had caught the books on Bhavkaleshwar temple and would complain about it in the election commission. Ganesh Naik challenged the Shiv Sena and asked them to pursue the complaint, saying that the more the issue gets highlighted the more Shiv Sena will have to pay all over Maharashtra.
Even before the results of the Lok Sabha elections are awaited, the heat of assembly elections can already be felt across Maharashtra and more so in Navi Mumbai where this time Ganesh Naik will face a direct battle with Shiv Sena’s Vijay Nahata and BJP’s Manda Mhatre. It’s another story that if alliance happens, one of them from the saffron alliance will be out of the race. But no matter whether Vijay Nahata or Manda Mhatre, whosoever contests, between Ganesh Naik and his rivals, Bhavkaleshwar temple is surely going to be one of the issues that will echo in Maharashtra assembly elections in October this year.
