PM Modi to visit Maharashtra tomorrow; will inaugurate Sant Tukaram Temple

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Maharashtra on June 14 where he will inaugurate the St. Tukaram Maharaj Temple in Dehu Pune.

Sant Tukaram was an Arkari saint and poet, best known for his Abanga devotional poetry and communal worship through spiritual songs known as kirtan. He lived in Dhu. The temple was rebuilt from stone with 36 peaks.

The Prime Minister will also inaugurate the Jal Bhushan Building and the Revolutionaries Gallery at Raj Bhawan in Mumbai. Jal Bhushan has been the official residence of the Governor of Maharashtra since 1885. Upon completion of its useful life, it was demolished and a new building approved in its place. The cornerstone of the new building was laid by the President of India in August 2019. All the distinguishing features of the old building have been preserved in the newly constructed building.

In 2016, the then Governor of Maharashtra, Shri Vidyasagar Rao, had found a hideout in Raj Bhawan. The British had earlier used it as a secret storehouse for weapons and ammunition. The vault was renovated in 2019. The gallery in the vault has been developed into a one-of-a-kind museum commemorating the contributions of freedom fighters and revolutionaries in Maharashtra.
