Bengaluru: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has described Maratha warrior Chatrapati Shivaji as a symbol of India’s self-respect.

Participating in the birth anniversary celebrations of Shivaji, organised by the Karnataka Maratha Welfare Association here, the chief minister offered floral tributes at the statue of Chatrapati Shivaji at Sadashiva Nagar.

He represents India’s unity and integrity. It was because of his valour that Hinduism could survive in India. He belongs to the whole country, to all sections of society,” he explained.
