Maharashtra Tourism and Environment Minister Aaditya Thackeray on Friday slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over its call for protest against Shiv Sena-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government. 

Without naming the saffron party, Aaditya Thackeray said that one political party has set a new low and is indulged in spreading fear and hate amid the coronavirus pandemic. This is happening when everyone is helping each other, he added. 

“One political party state unit has set a new low and a new low and a new world record - the only party in the world to indulge in politics and in spreading fear, hate and division when the world has forgotten all of it to help each other. This party has forgotten the pandemic (sic),” Aaditya Thackeray tweeted on Friday.

On Friday, the BJP leaders and workers protested against the Maharashtra government in various districts while wearing black clothes, face masks and carrying black placards. 

Meanwhile, Aaditya Thackeray took objection to one picture where children can be seen holding BJP flags and placards registering their protest against the state government and said that this was shameful. “What lust for power politics can make leaders do,” he added. 

“Absolutely shameful, what lust for power politics can make leaders do. Making kids stand in the heat, with their masks lowered, not covering the face for a political protest when we need to keep them safe and indoors. Corona ko bhul gaye, politics pyaara hai (Politics is important, corona is not),” Aaditya Thackeray said in a tweet. 

The BJP in Maharashtra has launched “Maharashtra Bachao” Andolan (Save Maharashtra protest) against the Uddhav Thackeray government to highlight its failure in handling to COVID-19 crisis in the state. 

Earlier, Maharashtra BJP President Chandrakant Patil appealed the people to protest outside their houses with a black placard to register their protest against the “ineffective handling” of coronavirus crisis by the Shiv Sena-led MVA government.
