A statement issued by the Raj Bhavan on Monday evening quoted Koshyari as saying that he was confident that the people of Maharashtra would show their big heart and forgive him for his recent remarks.

Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, who has faced criticism for saying, “Mumbai won’t have money if Gujaratis and Rajasthanis leave comments,” apologized for it on Monday.

Koshyari made the controversial comment during the naming ceremony of a chowk (intersection) in suburban Andheri on Friday evening.

“I tell people here that if Gujaratis and Rajasthanis are thrown out of Maharashtra, especially from Mumbai and Thane, you will have no money left and Mumbai will not be a financial capital,” he had said.

A statement issued by the Raj Bhavan on Monday evening quoted Koshyari as saying that he was confident that the people of Maharashtra would show their big heart and forgive him for his recent remarks.

Koshyari said that he may have committed a mistake by talking about the contribution of some members of the society during his dark speech.
