BJP leader\'s book comparing PM Modi to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj creates uproar; protest held in Pune

New Delhi: 'Today's Shivaji Narendra Modi' - a book released by BJP leader Jai Bhagwan Goyal in the national capital on Sunday (January 13) has kicked up a political storm in Maharashtra and has been sharply criticised by the three ruling parties in the state - Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP. The parties termed it an 'insult' to the ideals of the great Maratha warrior.

In Pune, workers of NCP and Sambhaji Brigade held a protest against the book for drawing comparisons between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Shivaji. The protest was held outside the Lalmahal area here. While NCP condemned the comparison and said it was a move to erase the glorious history of the Maratha emperor, Sambhaji Brigade asked to withdraw the book in 48 hours, failing which more agitations would follow.

On Sunday, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut criticized the book and its author by alleging that Goyal had earlier 'abused Maharashtra and Marathi people. "Writer of this book which was released in BJP office, Jai Bhagwan Goyal, who is he? This Jay Bhagwan Goyal is the same person who had attacked Maharashtra Sadan in Delhi and had abused Shivaji Maharaj`s Maharashtra and Marathi people. Well done BJP !!!"
