Bombay High Court dismisses plea seeking action against ex-Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari for comments on Shivaji Maharaj

The Court said that statements were in the nature of analysis of history and the intention of Koshyari was to enlighten the society, and not to show disrespect to any great person.

The Bombay High Court last week dismissed a petition seeking legal action against former Maharashtra governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Sudhanshu Trivedi for their statements about Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Mahatma Phule, his wife Savitribai and ‘Marathi manoos’.
