Leaders Online Desk: Last year, the Mavia government made it mandatory for all traders in Mumbai to put up nameplates in Marathi in bold letters. In this regard, trade associations had extended the deadline 3 times citing the impact of Corona and financial reasons. However, after the expiration of this period, the trade associations filed a petition in the Supreme Court against the decision of the state government. However, the Supreme Court rebuked the traders and ordered them to put up new boards in Marathi within 2 months.
After this decision of the Supreme Court, MNS President Raj Thackeray has reacted by making a big post on social media ‘X’. Welcoming the decision, Raj Thackeray said, the Supreme Court has given a clear verdict that Marathi boards should be put up on shops and establishments in Maharashtra in the next 2 months. The struggle that Maharashtra Navnirman Sena has been fighting for the issue of ‘Marathi Patya’ for the last several years has been recognized by today’s decision. Raj Thackeray has also said.
What exactly is in this post?
“Sasneh Jai Maharashtra
The Supreme Court has given a clear verdict that Marathi boards should be put up on the shops and establishments in Maharashtra within the next 2 months. Maharashtra Navnirman Sena’s struggle for the issue of ‘Marathi Patya’ for the past several years has been recognized by today’s decision.
Basically, when there is such a simple rule that shops and establishments should have signs in that language in the language of the state, why did a handful of traders take this fight to the court by opposing it? If you are in Maharashtra, if you are in Marathi, if you are in other states, what is there to be opposed to having boards in that language or honoring that language in that place? If you come here to Maharashtra for business, you must respect the language here.”
“Anyway, my Maharashtra soldiers fought on this issue, now the Supreme Court has also slapped a handful of traders on this. Every shop and establishment in Maharashtra needs bold Marathi signboards, and it is now the job of the municipal administration and to some extent the police administration to see to it. The shopkeepers should not fall into the trap and respect the court’s decision. And the government here will be watching, it will take action, but don’t forget that my Maharashtra soldiers will also be watching. Heartfelt congratulations to you for the awareness about ‘Marathi Patya’ came because of my Maharashtra soldiers. You have to stay alert and stay ahead.
