MP Navneet Rana recites Hanuman Chalisa in Delhi to ‘out power’ Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray

New Delhi, May 14 (Agency)

Independent MP Navneet Rana and her MLA husband Ravi Rana on Saturday recited Hanuman Chalisa at the Hanuman temple here and claimed that they prayed for averting the “biggest threat looming over Maharashtra in the form of Shiv Sena”. The couple was arrested last month on sedition charges after reciting Hanuman Chalisa outside Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s residence in Mumbai and released on bail 12 days later. Dressed in a saffron sari, Navneet Rana along with her husband and hundreds of supporters walked from her North Avenue residence to the Hanuman temple in Connaught Place. Navneet told reporters outside the temple, “Uddhav Thackeray is the biggest threat looming over Maharashtra. I have come to pray to get Maharashtra free from this menace. The Rana couple also performed aarti in the temple. He went to the temple on a day when Thackeray is scheduled to address a big rally in Mumbai.

Meanwhile, Amravati MP Navneet Rana accused the Shiv Sena of abandoning Hindutva by joining hands with Congress and NCP to grab power in Maharashtra. Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut had reportedly said that the time has come to show the true style of Shiv Sena. When asked about this, Navneet Rana said, ‘Uddhav Thackeray has forgotten the legacy of Balasaheb Thackeray. Balasaheb was the true guide of Hindutva, these are fake. Navneet Rana had challenged Thackeray to take action against “people praying at Orangzeb’s grave” instead of targeting him for supporting Hindutva. Continuing their attack on Shiv Sena, the Rana couple said they will “uproot the Lanka of Shiv Sena corruption” from the Mumbai Municipal Corporation, where elections are yet to be held.

The Shiv Sena has been in control of the country’s most prosperous local body, the Mumbai Municipal Corporation, since 1996. All eyes are on the election of this body, which has an annual budget of more than Rs 30,000 crore. This amount is much more than the budget of some small countries.
