Raj was accompanied by key associates, including spokesperson Shirish Parkar, to the Raj Bhavan.

Earlier this week, MNS student wing activists attacked the Mumbai University premises, destroying property after they were denied permission to hold talks with the vice chancellor.
The party had raised objections over the inclusion of social sciences and languages - Hindi, Marathi, Urdu and other languages - for students pursuing Bachelor of Arts. Six party leaders were arrested following the attack.
Jamir, in his capacity as chancellor of universities in the state, had summoned MNS chief to discuss the ransacking of the Registrar’’s chamber over the alleged neglect of Marathi students. (ANI)
