MNS opposed to renaming of Shivaji Park

Mumbai, December 10:

The Raj Thackeray-led MNS today said that it was opposed to Shiv Sena's move to rename the historic Shivaji Park here as 'Shiv Tirth'.

Making his party's stand clear, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena corporator and group leader in Brihanmumbai Municipal
Corporation (BMC) Dilip Lande said that "Shiv Sena should not try to pass the proposal because it has the numbers in the civic body. We will strongly oppose renaming of Shivaji Park as 'Shiv Tirth'," he said.

If the late Shiv Sena patriarch Bal Thackeray had to rename Shivaji Park as 'Shiv Tirth', he would have done it
when the Sena-BJP alliance came to power in the state in 1995 or when the Sena took control of the BMC in 1997. However, he did not do that," Lande observed.

Meanwhile, BJP, Sena's alliance partner in the BMC, remained non-committal on the issue and refrained from taking
any stand.

When asked about the renaming issue, senior BJP leader Gopinath Munde said, "I do not want to comment anything on
the matter."

He, however, said that a memorial for Balasaheb Thackeray should be constructed and BJP would strive for it.

Yesterday, the state unit of the Congress had also opposed the proposal to rename the park.

Late Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray used to refer to 'Shivaji Park' as 'Shiv Tirth' during his rallies.
