Mumbai, Feb 26: Spelling huge embarrassment for the ruling Bharatiya Jata Party-Shiv Se combine, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadvis tendered an unconditiol apology in the legislature after a Gujarati translation audio of Governor C. V. Rao’s speech was played in the House, here on Monday. As the matter came to light, Fadvis got up and tendered an unconditiol apology to the House and the members for the gaffe which he termed as “a very serious issue.”

The incident, ironically, occurred a day before the Marathi Language Day (February 27) and on the opening day of the Maharashtra Legislature’s Budget Session on Monday when Governor Rao got up to make his customary address before a joint sitting of the members of the assembly and council. Barely a few minutes into the speech in English which was delivered by Rao, most members were startled to hear a Gujarati translation on their headphones instead of Marathi. (IANS)
