Former Maharashtra Minister and Shiv Sena (UBT) MLA Aaditya Thackeray on Saturday lashed out at the Eknath Shinde-led government and questioned the law and order situation in state following the Thane BJP MLA firing case.


In a post on X, Aaditya Thackeray reiterated his earlier 'khoke sarkar' remarks against Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde's dispensation in the state.



Aaditya Thackeray outlined a series of incidents highlighting the deteriorating security situation under what he termed as the "BJP-sponsored khoke sarkar" (a government shrouded in corruption), reported the ANI.

"Maharashtra was taken over by the BJP-sponsored Khoke Sarkar," Aaditya Thackeray said in his post.

He further alleged that the past two years witnessed a surge in riots sparked by fake WhatsApp messages, coupled with threats targeting businesses by criminal elements pointing it to be the current state of affairs in the state.

"In the past 2 years, many riots have been sparked off over fake WhatsApp messages. Goons have been threatening businesses," the Shiv Sena (UBT) leader said, as per the ANI.

Aaditya Thackeray questioned the safety of the citizens in the face of these alarming incidents.

"This is the current state of affairs in Maharashtra, unfortunately, under a highly incapable and shameless illegal CM," Aaditya Thackeray said.

"How will citizens feel safe under these criminals running the regime?," he added.

The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Ganpat Gaikwad had on Friday allegedly opened fire at Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena leader Mahesh Gaikwad at Hill Line Police Station in Maharashtra's Ulhasnagar.

Earlier in the day, Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Sanjay Raut called for Chief Minister Ekhnath Shinde's resignation following the incident.

Hitting out at the Eknath Shinde government, Sanjay Raut said that the way the Chief Minister's Office (CMO) has become a den of goons, similar incidents can also take place at the CMO.

"Today, it happened at a Police station. The manner in which the CMO has become a den of goons, I fear that such incidents can take place even at the Mantralaya and CMO," Sanjay Raut said, the news agency reported on Saturday.

NCP (Sharad Pawar faction) National Spokesperson Clyde Crasto also criticised the state government claiming a failure of law and order.

Meanwhile, Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde on Saturday visited the hospital where his party leader has been admitted. He remains to be in critical condition after sustaining multiple bullet injuries.

Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadanavis has ordered a high-level inquiry into firing incident.
