Meanwhile, responding to the latest development in Maharashtra, Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Aaditya Thackeray said, “ED is an active part of the NDA (National Democratic Alliance). They have jailed Suraj Sawant, Kishori Pednekar and leaders like Rajan Salvi continue to face pressures to leave the party but these are brave people who stand good in their stead.”

“We have many times raised the question of ‘Magnetic Maharashtra’ not taking place in the past two years. There is only one explanation that the current government had pressure to postpone the event till after ‘Vibrant Gujarat’ happened,” responded Yuva Sena president Thackeray.
