Al­lies at it again; Aa­ditya takes on BJP over open-air gym de­mo­li­tion

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - FRONT PAGE - HT Correspondent ht­metro@hin­dus­tan­times.com

MUM­BAI: In com­ments that could spark an­other clash be­tween al­lies, an an­gry Yuva Sena chief Aa­ditya Thack­eray lashed out at Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Raj Puro­hit and the BMC for ask­ing ac­tor Dino Morea to dis­man­tle the open air gym­na­sium put up at the Marine Drive prom­e­nade.

His father and Shiv Sena chief Ud­dhav Thack­eray has reg­u­larly taken pot­shots at the BJP, the Sena’s part­ner in both the state govern­ment and the BMC. Thack­eray ju­nior was pro- voked by the de­ci­sion of a three­mem­ber com­mit­tee con­sist­ing of the BMC chief, the her­itage panel chief and the Mum­bai po­lice com­mis­sioner re­ject­ing per­mis­sion for the gym, that he had in­au­gu­rated with much fan­fare amid con­tro­versy last July.
