Aaditya Thackeray has once again targeted Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and the Election Commission. On the ongoing hearing in the Supreme Court regarding retaining the party name and party symbol bow-arrow, Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Aaditya Thackeray said that this fight is no longer for Shiv Sena but for the protection of the constitution.

Aaditya Thackeray said, "The Supreme Court is serious in its hearing about the retention of party name and symbol of the party, we have challenged the decision of the Election Commission, we feel that the Election Commission has been compromised. Now this fight is not just for Shiv Sena, but to protect the constitution, as this result is important to preserve democracy.”

Shinde MLA Sanjay Shirsat has alleged that Shiv Sena funds were diverted by Uddhav Thackeray to another account. Speaking on this, Aaditya Thackeray has said, "I don't pay attention to those people who are traitors, even if their party doesn't pay attention to them, they may steal the name of the party, but the stamp of betrayal will always be there." 

Aaditya Thackeray said, "What we were spending for Mumbaikars, we were bringing development funds, they have an eye on fixed deposits, so that they can spend and bow down to people in Delhi, cancelled the projects that we were going to implement and spent INR 40 crores in 28 hours on their trip to Davos. We want to divert the money for Mumbaikars and deposit it in our coffers.”
