Thackeray and Governor BS Koshyari went face to face in the beginning of last month for the reopening of temples in the state. The governor had asked the Chief Minister in a satirical letter whether he had become “secular”. In response, the Chief Minister said that his Hindutva does not require a certificate and the government will take a decision only after “careful consideration” on the matter.
The Prime Minister and many other leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan, have all emphasized the need to maintain social distance during festivals so that the virus cannot spread. Thackeray also pointed to Delhi, where the increase in air pollution has shown an alarming increase in cases in the last 10 days.
Thackeray also said that, “In Delhi we are seeing an increase in cases. They say that it is due to increase in pollution … I have not gone there, but they say so. So I would like to request you that you are on Diwali Do not burst firecrackers. ” The chief minister did not specifically ban it – as many other states including Delhi have done, but asked the public to “control” it.
