Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray, on Sunday, said that he postponed his proposed Ayodhya visit as it was a “trap” laid out against him. He also urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to bring the Uniform Civil Code at the earliest and law on population control.
Addressing a public meeting in Pune on Sunday, Thackeray said those who were against his visit were trying to trap him in a legal battle. “Those who were against my Ayodhya visit were trying to trap me, but I decided not to fall into this. I did not want my MNS workers to go to jail,” Thackeray said.
Thackeray was to visit Ayodhya on June 5 though it created a stir as Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Uttar Pradesh Brij Bhushan Singh said the MNS chief should apologise for his past remarks against the north Indians before he comes to Ayodhya.
