Son of Shiv Sena supremo and Yuva Sena chief, Aditya Thackeray said that ban on Pakistan artists was justified and that his party shares this ideology with BJP. He said that is was the need of the hour and that the ban should continue till situation between the two countries improve.
“It is impossible to dance and sing with those who are opening fire at us and killing our soldiers. Relations between the nations can only improve if terrorism is uprooted,” said Aditya.
When asked about Shiv Sena’s equation with BJP, Aditya said that his party shares the ideology with BJP. He said that it was a norm among political groups to go public about their ideologies. He added that ongoing crisis should not be politicised.
Aditya said that his party openly praised the Centre’s surgical strike, however, we have been critical when required. “We have personally congratulated PM Modi for the surgical strike. But we have been also critical of the Centre’s forced imposing of the land acquisition bill and we have also presented our views and demands in terms of GST Bill,” he said.
