Bal Thackeray 'ignored' at Marathi literary meet: Minister


Mumbai, Apr 2: Shiv Sena founder (late) Bal Thackeray was "ignored" at the All India Marathi Literary Meet being held at Ghuman in Punjab, a senior party leader alleged today.

"There was not even a mention of Balasaheb at the event by any speaker. It seems what he did for Sikhs after (indira) Gandhi's assassination was forgotten," state Transport Minister Diwakar Raote said.
