Devendra Fadnavis Jibe At Uddhav Thackeray's Failure: "Court Summed Up Maharashtra Govt Failure Of Last Year"
New Delhi: Former Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis today said that the bitter criticism by two courts of the mishandling of Kangana Ranaut and Arnab Goswami cases summed up the Uddhav Thackeray regime's failure in the state in the past year.
"Uddhav Thackeray's one year is summed up by two decisions of the court...the court gave a nice earful...Supreme Court gave a hard-hitting decision. It looks like the government machinery is being misused," said Mr. Fadnavis at Mumbai at the press meet today.
He was referring to the setack suffered by the state government in two cases involving the Bollywood actor and the news anchor the court slammed the Maharastra government for its perceived rough handling of the issues.
"We are not in line with Arnab Goswami or Kangana Ranaut all the time. But the way government treated them, we don't stand by it at all," said Mr. Fadnavis at the meet to mark the completion of the Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi's (Maharashtra Development Front) first year.
The former CM also singled out Mr. Thackeray for his alleged "threats".
"I haven't seen a Chief Minister who threatens so much. His statements do not suit the Chief Minister's chair...He should realize that no one remains after speaking this type of language," Mr. Fadnavis said.
If you come after families and children, then remember you have families and children too. You are not clean. We know how to set you straight, roast you," the former Chief Minister said.
The Shiv Sena and the BJP contested the 2019 Maharashtra Assembly election together but the alliance fell apart over the sharing of the CM post.
