After BJP leader Jai Bhagwan Goyal’s book — Aaj ke Shivaji: Narendra Modi — triggered controversy in Maharashtra for comparing Prime Minister Modi with Chhatrapati Shivaji, the party has distanced itself from the book. BJP leader Sanjay Mayukh said the party has nothing to do with the book. He, however, ensured that Goyal has expressed his willingness to withdraw the portions that have created controversy. Goyal has also tried to explain that he just wanted to convey that Modi has been working like the Maratha warrior king for the people since 2014.
