It should be mentioned here that when Raj Thackeray had proposed to visit Gujarat, then Chief Minister Narendra Modi had given him state guest honor and facilitated his tour. But dog’s Tail can never be straightened. His cadres time and again spit venom against Gujarati language and people. Once upon a time, on Western railway line stations, Gujarati language was used along with other language on sign boards. Later Gujarati language was erased permanently. Earlier this month a new circle was built through local Gujarati MLA Narendra Mehta’s grant in Mira Bhayandar area. A sign board of ‘Vandan Circle’ was put here in Gujarati language. It had to be removed soon due to protest by Marathi Ekikaran Samiti.
