During the August meeting, Thackeray had stressed on the need to protect the federal structure and the Constitution and without naming anyone, said all powers were being concentrated in one hand in the country.

“Rajiv ji (Gandhi) brought the Panchayati Raj, which means decentralisation of power to the smaller institutions. What is happening today? All the powers are getting concentrated in one hand. Then what is the point of having a state government? Will the state governments no longer be required in the future and one man can rule the country and we will have to just keep nodding? We won’t allow this to happen,” Thackeray had said.
