Union Minister Narayan Rane
Narayan Rane, a Union minister, has stirred a controversy with his comments about slapping Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray for what he claimed was the latter's ignorance of India's independence year.
Rane may be detained as a result of his words against the chief minister, according to reports. According to reports, a Nashik police team has departed for Chiplun in the Konkan district, where Rane is currently residing, following a complaint against the Union minister for his remarks.
The police have yet to comment on these events. “It's disgraceful that the chief minister is unaware of the country's independence year. During his address, he leaned back to inquire about the number of years since independence. "I would have given (him) a tight slap if I had been there," Rane stated on Monday during his Jan Ashirwad Yatra in the neighbouring Raigad district.
During his August 15 address to the people of the state, the BJP leader and former Shiv Sena chief minister said Thackeray forgot the year of independence.
According to Rane, Thackeray had to check the year of independence with his aides midway through his address that day. Shiv Sena workers slammed Rane's comments, putting up posters in Mumbai and other cities labelling him a "kombdi chor" (chicken thief), a reference to the poultry shop he ran in Chembur during his first tenure with the Bal Thackeray-led party five decades ago.
