Mumbai: Reacting sharply to the political turmoil in Rajasthan, Maharashtra Cabinet Minister Aaditya Thackeray on Tuesday termed BJP’s Operation Lotus an ‘inhuman’ move.
In an exclusive interview to one television channel, the Shiv Sena leader said that at a time where the country is undergoing the Covid-19 crisis, government should be helping in dealing with the pandemic and not try to destabilise other governments.
“Any such operation anywhere is inhuman. We are all fighting a pandemic. The governments should be helped in dealing with them. Any effort to destabilise government at such a time is inhuman.
Thackeray, who is usually guarded about his comments, openly slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) during the interaction.
Thackeray’s comments came a day ago Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamana wrote a scathing editorial against the operation, saying that the BJP should leave some states where opposition parties were ruling.
