Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Monday responded to Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari's letter over the re-opening of places of worship, saying that his 'Hindutva' did not need a 'certificate' from him.

The heated exchange of words between the Chief Minister and the Governor comes as temples across Maharashtra including the Shridi Sai Baba Temple and the Siddhivinayak Mandir witness protests by people and saints demanding the re-opening of temples across the state.
