Amid Maharashtra crisis and intense speculation that chief minister Uddhav Thackeray may resign, it was falsely claimed that Aaditya Thackeray has removed ‘minister’ from his Twitter bio.
Amid back-to-back developments deepening the crisis in Maharashtra, the screenshot of Maharashtra minister Aaditya Thackeray’s Twitter bio went viral with a fake claim that the chief minister’s son has removed ‘minister’ from his Twitter profile, in a possible hint that the Maha Vikas Agadhi government was moving towards dissolution. Sena MP Priyanka Chaturvedi slammed the fake news and said it was never part of Aaditya Thackeray’s Twitter bio, to begin with.
After declaring the rebellion which has challenged the future of the Maha Vikas Agadhi government in Maharashtra, rebel Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde, who is now staying at a Guwahati hotel with his coterie of MLAS, removed Shiv Sena from his Twitter bio. He was also sacked as the party leader at the state legislature following his rebellion from him.
With the rebel MLAs camping in Guwahati, the crisis of the Sena-Congress-NCP alliance only deepened on Wednesday with Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut hinting at the dismissal of the state assembly. While the crucial Cabinet meeting, which Uddhav Thackeray is attending virtually from his residence because of his Covid, is on, it is only speculation that Uddhav may resign.
The fake news of Aaditya Thackeray dropping ‘minister’ from his bio only added fuel to the speculation that the state Assembly would be dissolved. Apart from Priyanka Chaturvedi who confirmed that Aaditya Thackeray never had ‘minister’ mentioned on his Twitter bio, old screenshots of his Twitter bio read: “Voicing the Youth, Poems and Photography: Passion. President, Yuva Sena. President- Mumbai District Football Association Instagram: adityathackeray”, the same as present.
