Maharashtra Navnirman Sena or MNS chief Raj Thackeray announced today that his visit to Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh, scheduled for June 5, has been postponed.
On Twitter, Raj Thackeray said that his tour to Ayodhya has been postponed for the time being and that he will speak about it at his meeting in Pune on May 22.
Raj Thackeray’s tweet came amid reports that he is unwell.
The MNS chief had recently made controversial comments demanding that loudspeakers be removed on top of mosques, otherwise his party associates would recite Hanuman Chalisa outside this place at a higher volume.
Raj Thackeray is also an open critic of migrant workers from Northern India, especially UP and Bihar, who go to Maharashtra.
Recently, BJP MP from Uttar Pradesh, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, had opposed Raj Thackeray’s proposed visit to Ayodhya and warned that he would not be allowed to enter Ayodhya until he publicly apologized for “humiliating” North Indians in Past.
