‘Don’t threaten,’ says Fadnavis after Thackeray’s ‘don’t compel me to come after you’ jibe.


A day after Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray warned the opposition to stay away from vindictive politics, former CM Devendra Fadnavis asked Thackeray to stop threatening. “Show governance instead,” the BJP leader said, slamming the Maha Vikas Agadhi government for the Covid-19 situation in the state. “It’s by Gods grace that second wave hasn’t reached in Maharashtra yet,” Fadnavis said.


“We have never made personal attacks. if we are talking about personal attacks, Shiv Sena leaders have attacked my wife but i have never made a fuss over it,” Fadnavis said referring to the recent Twitter fight between Amruta Fadnavis and Shiv Sena leader Priyanka Chaturvedi.

Talking about the government’s fallout with journalist Arnab Goswami and Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut, Fadnavis distanced the party’s stand from the opinions of both Goswami and Ranaut and said, “We do not subscribe to the thoughts of Arnab Goswami and Kangana Ranaut but we are against the attitude of suppressing those who speak against the government.”
