On Tuesday, Raj Thackeray warned the state government to pull down the loudspeakers placed in mosques by May 3. Referring to the same, the Deputy CM of the state said that when the right time comes, he'll talk about the matter. He added that he has an answer for every question.
MNS chief Raj Thackeray again called to shut loudspeakers in mosques. Additionally, he threatened the state government with an ultimatum, stating that the loudspeakers should be pulled down by May 3 or else they would play Hanuman Chalisa on speakers. He added that this is a social issue, not religious. And he will not go back on this subject.
Following the same, Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam stated that if a single loudspeaker is removed from the city, it would be a great matter of shame.
