Mumbai: Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Monday expressed his desire to resign from his post and also announced that he also conveyed his wish to resign to Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the latter’s recent visit to Mumbai.
A look back at the Governor’s statements that sparked the controversy, leading to Raj Bhavan’s announcement on Monday that he wanted to leave the post.
Addressing a rally in November last year, Koshyari said Chhatrapati Shivaji was an “icon of ancient times” and that figures such as Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar in Nitin Gadkari were the modern icons of the state.
“Shivaji is an icon of the old days; I’m talking about the new era. You will find (icons) here. From Dr. Ambedkar to Nitin Gadkari, you will find them here,” Koshyari had said.
In July last year, Koshyari said Mumbai would not remain the country’s financial capital if Gujaratis and Marwaris were expelled from the city. His remark drew criticism from several opposition parties, with former Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray saying it was time to show him the famous Kolhapuri chappal.
During the inauguration of the new buildings of the University of Mumbai, the governor of Maharashtra had urged the vice-chancellor of the university to name the new hostel for international students after the freedom fighter Vinayak Damodar Savarkar.
During a program in Aurangabad in March last year, Koshyari said Samarth Ramdas was Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s “guru”. “Many maharajas and chakravartis (emperors) were born on this land. But who would have asked about Chandragupta if it hadn’t been for Chanakya? Who would have asked about Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj if it was not for Samarth (Ramdas),” Koshyari said.
A video of Koshyari went viral in March last year in which he is seen mocking the child marriage of social activists Jyotirao Phule and Savitribai Phule. Savitribai got married at the age of 10 to Jyotirao, who was 13 at the time. “Now imagine what the boy and girl would have done after the wedding. What would they have thought? the Governor had said.
Uddhav Thackeray, when he was Chief Minister of Maharashtra, accused Koshyari of being hyperactive and pointed out that the governor failed to fill 12 vacant seats in the state Legislative Council despite the recommendation of the state government .
In November 2019, Koshyari swore in Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar as chief minister and deputy chief minister in a surprise early morning swearing-in ceremony amid a scuffle between BJP-Shiv Sena for the position of CM.
