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.
