On Sunday, Jul 3, Bhosale told the media persons, “The title Chhatrapati is exclusively used for King Shivaji and his descendants. Using it for naming a food brands for political gain is very insulting to us."
He also added that he would sue Rane for maligning the royal title by continuing using it. Though Rane did not retaliate back by commenting on this issue, he said that he shares a good and healthy relation with Bhosale.
But sources close to Rane said requesting anonymity that he would discuss the issue with the MP before making any statement.
Rane put up his Chhatrapati vada pav against the Shiv Sena"s Shiv vada pav stall at Powai late last week. Rane claimed that all Shiv vada pav stalls that were started under the Sena initiative were illegal and hence they needed to be demolished. He said he is planning to set up several such stalls opposite the Sena outlets. After this, the civic administration has resolved to demolish all illegal stalls without discrimination.
