Earlier in the month, amid the controversy over the Congress Seva Dal booklet that claimed Nathuram Godse and Savarkar had “physical relations”, Fadnavis had said that the reference against Savarkar will not be tolerated and asked how long the Shiv Sena is going to endure it.
“How long will Shiv Sena tolerate the humiliation of a person (Savarkar) who sacrificed everything for the nation? We will not be silent on this. We will not tolerate the humiliation of Savarkar,” Fadnavis had said.
