A controversial statement has been made by Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday when he said Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena might be “wearing bangles” but BJP was not and hence it knows retaliation.
Fadnavis addressed protestors at Azad Maidan where BJP launched a protest against Maharashtra government over issues related to farmers and women.
On February 20, while addressing an anti-CAA rally, at Kalaburagi in Karnataka, Waris Pathan from AIMIM had said, “time has now come for us to unite and achieve freedom. Remember we are 15 crores but can dominate over 100 crores.”
“They are telling we have let out a woman to be in front- only the lionesses have come out and you are already sweating. You can understand what would happen if all of us come together,” he had said.
Pathan faced immense criticism after issuing the statement, he later had to take back his words. He said, “I had not targeted any community but had spoken against members of some organisations.”
“If any of my words have hurt someone, I take them back as I am a true Indian,” Pathan said at a press conference here.
The AIMIM leader also said that he was being projected as anti-Indian and anti-Hindu for some days.
Pathan reiterates, “My earlier statement was against people who are members of organisations like RSS, BJP, Bajrang Dal, etc. These 100 are those people who want to divide this beautiful nation.”
Commenting on the statement made by Devendra Fadnavis MLA Aaditya Thackeray got back at Fadnavis for making an inappropriate comment on Shiv Sena. He stated his comment made fun of strong woman and they have worn bangles along with their bravery.
Aaditya says, “Shri @Dev_Fadnavis Ji, normally I choose not to comment back. Kindly apologise abt bangles comment: bangles are worn by the strongest of all- the women. Politics can go on, but we need to change this discourse. Rather disgraceful coming from an fmr CM
