Mumbai: The Shiv Sena supremo and the Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray warned Opposition BJP against attempts to topple his Maha-Vikas-Aghadi (MVA) government.
In a two-part interview that would be published in Saamana, the mouthpiece of Sena and webcast on Saturday and Sunday, Thackeray roared, “I am sitting and giving interview….try and topple my government.” The interview was taken by executive editor of Saamana and Sena Rajya Sabha member, Sanjay Raut on the occasion of 60th birthday of Thackeray that falls on July 27.
The chief minister Thackeray, who formed the coalition government with the help of NCP and Congress in November last year, has decided not to celebrate his birthday next week. Instead of spending money on garlands, the amount should be contributed to the chief minister’s relief fund, health camps, blood and plasma donation camps should be organised. There should be no posters, banners and crowd, he told his supporters and Sena activists.
Answering a question on prevailing COVID-19 situation in the state, he said Coronavirus is a threat and people will have to wear masks and maintain physical distancing. “I follow the norms,” Thackeray claimed.
Meanwhile, the chief minister has reportedly told the state cabinet that the existing lockdown norms across the state will be relaxed from August 1. It will be “unlockdown” and the current restrictions will be relaxed further. “We’re in the process of further strengthening the health infrastructure in Mumbai Metropolitan region within a week. However, since there has been a sudden spurt of cases in rural parts of the state, stringent measures will have to be taken there”, Thackeray said.
