Mumbai: A coordination panel comprising senior leaders of the ruling “Maha Vikas Aghadi” alliance in Maharashtra will look into the various aspects of the National Population Register (NPR), Chief Minister and Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray said in Mumbai on Tuesday.
Addressing media in Vidhan Bhawan in south Mumbai, where the budget session of the state legislature is underway, Thackeray said, “Responsible leaders of the three parties will be part of it (coordination committee on NPR).”
“I won’t let anyone snatch the right of any citizens of Maharashtra. I am very clear on this,” Business Line quoted his response to a question reportedly asked about differences in the ruling alliance over implementation of NPR in the state.
