Maha Governor, CM face off over Saki Naka rape & murder case

Mumbai, Sep 21 (UNI) Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari and the state’s coalition government, led by Shiv Sena, were on Tuesday engaged in a tussle over the Saki Naka rape and death case with Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray telling Mr Koshyari that his support for BJP’s demand to convene a special session of state assembly to discuss the incident will be “lethal for democracy”.
Earlier, the Governor had requested the Chief Minister to consider BJP women lawmakers' demand for a special session to discuss the issue of women's security.
In response, Mr Thackeray said that since violence against women was a national issue, Mr Koshiyari should request Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home minister Amit Shah to call a four-day special session of Parliament over the issue.
