Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and former Maharashtra minister Chhagan Bhujbal on Monday sought action against a website for writing an allegedly offensive article on renowned social reformer and pioneer in women's education Savitribai Phule.
In a letter to Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, the NCP MLA from Yeola in Nashik said legal action should be taken against the website and the author of the article.
The attempt to malign Savitribai Phule was outrageous, painful and highly condemnable, Bhujbal said.
