Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had targetted Shiv Sena's silence over the recent controversial remark by AIMIM leader Waris Pathan and said, "Shiv Sena might be wearing bangles but we are not.

In a Twitter post, Aaditya Thackeray wrote, "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 a fmr CM."(sic)

While addressing a rally, Pathan had said, "They tell us that we have kept our women in the 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.
