4. Show Courage to Say Shivaji Statue Will Be Tallest in the World: Shiv Sena to Fadnavis

The proposed Shivaji memorial in the Arabian Sea in Mumbai, Maharashtra.

The Shiv Sena on Monday asked Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to show as much courage to “assertively” state that the mid-sea Shivaji Memorial statue will be the tallest in the world, as he did while giving reservation to the Maratha community.

In an editorial in Saamana, the party mouthpiece, the Sena said NCP state unit chief Jayant Patil has claimed that the height of the statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji has been decreased to ensure that Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s statue stays the tallest in the world. Some incidents seem to be proving his claims, it added.

Eight years ago at Madh jetty creek, a man was found dead with face crushed with a heavy stone. In 2016, the trial court acquitted the suspect, a colleague of the deceased, for lack of evidence. After that, police neither filed an appeal nor carried out further investigations.

According to police, the accused, Rahul Ravi Das, and deceased Kamal Sardar used to work as housekeeping staff in a mall in Andheri. In 2010, Sardar accused Das of stealing Rs 12,000 from his wallet during working hours. This incident had caused enmity between Sardar and Das. In the same year in December, Das invited Sardar for a drink and urged him to forget the bitter incident. They took Versova jetty to Madh jetty creek.
