Shah to pen book in Gujarati on Maratha history: Sahasrabuddhe

Press Trust of India  |  Pune 

chief is studying the history of Marathas and planning to write a book on it in Gujarati, a senior party functionary said.

"A year ago, he told me that he wished to read the history of Marathas and requested me to look for some books on Maratha history in Hindi in the library," national vice president Vinay Sahasrabuddhe said.

He was speaking at a function held at the Balgandharva auditorium here yesterday at the release of the translated versions of the book "Why in politics" penned by Shah.

The event was organised by the think tank Rambhau Mhalgi Prabhodini (RMP).

"According to Shah, Gujarati people's knowledge about and Maratha history is limited only to the 'Surat loot'. There is a need to broaden the knowledge and understanding about the Maratha king for which there is a need to write about it differently," Sahasrabuddhe said quoting Shah.

He said the BJP chief is currently studying Maratha history so that he could bring the "original history" in front of people through the book.
