Uddhav Thackeray could choose someone to attend meetings and visit locations on his behalf: Chandrakant Patil

On Friday, opposed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the State of Maharashtra slammed Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, stating he should outsource his responsibilities to those who can participate in regular meetings and visit places in his absence. Thackeray, 61, had cervical spine surgery in November. He had been absent for the entirety of the state legislature's five-day winter session, which took place last week in December. He has, however, used video conferencing from his house to attend official meetings, weekly cabinet meetings, and other activities.

 

Chandrakant Patil, the Head of the Maharashtra BJP, stated, "According to reports, the Chief Minister has not met with the public in about 70 days. As a result, Thackeray should transfer his authority to someone who can attend daily meetings and occasionally travel around the state." "I wish him a swift recovery because he reminds me of one of our friends. However, administering and controlling a state with a population of roughly 12 crores people cannot be done just from one's house. Such responsibilities should be treated with more respect "he stated.

 

Patil responded to Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut's criticism of the BJP by saying: "Raut needs to realize that his party is losing because of the coalition government. A Sena candidate cannot win the chairmanship of Mumbai Bank, but an NCP candidate can." He added that Sena's goal in fighting the next elections in Goa and Uttar Pradesh is to gain a particular number of votes to earn the title of the national party. "To get such recognition, you have to get a specific number of votes in more than one state," he explained.
