Ashadh Krushna 7, Kaliyug Varsha 5114

Mumbai : ‘The monsoon session of the State Legislative Assembly (SLA) will be starting from tomorrow and it is not very likely that the Maharashtra Government would pass the ‘anti-superstitions Act’. The Act is opposed by everyone. Stiil, if the Government presents it, all opposition parties will strongly oppose the said Bill,’ stated Mr. Eknath Khadse, the Opposition leader, SLA. He addressed the press conference held on the eve of the monsson session.

Mr. Khadse answered the questions asked by reporter of Dainik Sanatan Prabhat (DSP).

The reporter of DSP asked that recently nabbed Abu Jindal, was not the only jihadi terrorist from Maharashtra but a terrorist machinery with many jihadi terrorists was working in Maharashtra and Maharashtra anti-terrorist Squad has deliberately created the concept of ‘Hindu terrorism’ only to back this machinery. This accusation was openly made by ‘Council of National Hindu Legal Experts (Council)’ in a press conference. Are the Opposition parties going to raise voice against this? Mr. Khadse and Mr. Tawade said while replying to this question that they would force the Government to explain whether such terrorist machinery was working in Maharashtra and if the Coucil submits proof, the State Government would be taken to task. Mr. Khadse and other opposition leaders spontaneously answered the questions asked by DSP reporter.  

The Government has decided to withdraw a text book of NCERT curriculum as Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar was insulted in the book. There is also insult of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in this book by giving his history only in 4 lines. The DSP reporter asked whether Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj would also be done justice like Dr. Ambedkar. On this Mr. Subhash Desai, a group leader of Shiv Sena said that they would definitely take up the issue during the session.

Useless Act like ‘anti-supersttions Act’ will always be opposed ! – Eknath Khadse, Opposition leader, SLA


‘Warakari Sect and religious organizations have strongly opposed the anti-superstitions Act which will, if passed, treat various customs and traditions followed as per Hindu Dharma as offence. Warakaris warned the CM at Pandharpur that he should not go for ‘puja’ of Lord Panduranga if this Act was passed. When the DSP reporter asked whether the Opposition parties would be fighting against passing of the Act considering sentiments of Warakaris, Mr. Eknath Khadse said,

  • “.Anti-superstitions Bill was sent to Joint Review Committee and objections to the Bill were already noted.
  • There are still many shortcomings in the Bill. If the Government forcibly presents the Bill during the session, we will bring the shortcomings to the notice of the Government and oppose the Bill.
  • The Government has not held a single meeting on such important Bill.
  • This Bill is of no use and we will oppose it.”
