While Shiv Sena and BJP laid the foundation stone for memorial of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj last year, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray believes in saving the legacy of the warrior king in a different way.

The real memorial for Shivaji Maharaj will be the maintenance of his forts to serve as an inspiration for future generations. There are many statues in the country.
