Aditya Thackeray takes aim at the opposition in his first speech as MLA

In his first speech after being elected MLA from the Worli constituency, Shiv Sena leader Aditya Thackeray has blasted at BJP over the events that unfolded after the state assembly elections not too long ago. He also took shots at former chief minister Devendra Fadnavis by mentioning that people who weren’t reading Sena’s mouthpiece “Saamna” have now started reading it. 

Speaking about BJP, Thackeray said “I have seen lust for power and how friends changed for grabbing it. Even as our voices are different (Sena, NCP and Congress), there is definitely a consensus in the MVA government,” while adding “Lotuses will no longer bloom anywhere.”

He also mentioned that GST and demonetization have caused a lot of damage to the citizens. Thackeray also talked about how the education system needs to be revamped in order to allow job creation in various sectors. He stressed the importance of the need to change KG to PG education. 

Thackeray also committed to take digital education to the villages, an initiative that central governments have been running for the past few years now. He also spoke on other important topics like pollution, climate, plastic ban, etc mentioning that the government will remain committed to fighting climate change. 

29-year-old Thackeray became the first member of the Thackeray family to contest in the elections. He is the son of Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and the grandson of Bal Thackeray.
