Bhagat Singh Koshyari: So there will be no money left in Mumbai… Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari apologizes for his statement

Mumbai: Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has apologized for his statement. He had said during an event in Andheri in the past that if Gujarati and Rajasthani are removed from Mumbai and Thane, there will be no money left here. Governor Koshyari had a lot of grit for this statement. CM Eknath Shinde had also said that he should not make such a statement.

Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari posted an apology on Twitter. It read, ‘Perhaps there was a mistake on my part in praising the contribution of certain communities in the development of Mumbai at a public function on 29th July.’

‘Everyone’s contribution to development’
It is further written in the post, ‘Not only Maharashtra, everyone has a special contribution to development in the whole of India.’ It further said, ‘I got immense love from the people of Maharashtra in three years, but if I have accidentally made some mistake in the said speech, then it cannot be imagined to take this mistake as contempt of Maharashtra.’

‘I will show my great heart by forgiving’
Koshyari said, ‘I will show my great heart by forgiving this humble state servant of ours.’ The opposition had termed the governor’s statement as an injury on Marathi pride. At the same time, CM Shinde had said that the Governor should speak within the ambit of the Constitution.
