Days after demanding a full-time home minister for Maharashtra, Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray once again put ally BJP in a spot on Sunday.
Thackeray has now lined up a meeting with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis over the concerns harboured by police families on September 7.
Earlier, the chief minister had to face the ire of police families residing in Worli’s BDD chawl after traffic cop Vilas Shinde, who was beaten up by two youths, succumbed to his injuries on August 31.
Earlier this week, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray had spoken out against the incident quite vehemently and had even tried make a political issue out of it. Now, the Shiv Sena has done the same.
On Saturday also, Uddhav Thackeray had fired a barb at the chief minister claiming that the state needed a full-time home minister. At present, Fadnavis holds the home portfolio.
