Aaditya Thackeray spoke on party's contribution to BMC
Regarding road repair contract, Aaditya alleged, "They inflated the cost of contracts. When I raised this scam, they had to cancel the tender. We saved Rs 450 cr of Mumbaikars."
Talking about the contribution of Shiv Sena in BMC, he said that when in 1997, his party came to power, BMC budget was in minus Rs 600 crore. "But now BMC is having Rs 90,000 crore as deposits. This is how we have nurtured BMC over the years," he said.
Reacting to recent development about Election Commission order he said, "They can steal our party name and symbol but can't not steal the love in the heart of people of Mumbai and Maharashtra.
All Maharashtra is standing with us. This is not the battle of Shiv Sena but it's battle to save democracy and constitution. Let's unite and fight with them. Victory will be ours."
