Mumbai: Yuva Sena chief Aaditya Thackeray said here he has discussed plans for revival of the vibrant Mumbai nightlife with Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

“I had a meeting with @CMOMaharashtra on my proposal for #MumbaiNightLife. I will tweet details soon, good news,” he posted on Twitter yesterday. “Necessary laws would be amended so that the financial capital can have a nightlife by the end of the year,” he later told a TV channel.

The 1.30 AM deadline for restaurants and bars is likely to be discarded after the laws are amended, 24-year-old Aaditya, the son of Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, said. “Malls, clubs could stay open 24X7, along with chemists and convenience stores,” he tweeted earlier.

Non-residential areas like Kala Ghoda, Nariman Point, BKC can be Special Entertainment Zones at night, he added. “Eateries, Cafes, Milk Shops, Chemists and Malls and Mill-Malls (with all their establishments) can be given the option of staying open,” he had said in a tweet.

Aaditya had also recently on Twitter thanked Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria “for his nod to the proposal of nightlife”.
