After BJP leader’s remark on Shiv Sena Bhavan, Uddhav Thackeray says language of intimidation won’t be tolerated

A befitting reply will be given to the people speaking intimidating language

Launching a scathing attack on BJP, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday said the Shiv Sena won’t tolerate the language of intimidation, and a befitting reply will be given to the people speaking it.

He was referring to the statement given by the BJP legislator Prasad Lad’s that if needed, the Shiv Sena Bhavan, headquarters of the party in central Mumbai, would be demolished. However, he later expressed regret on his remarks, saying his comments were presented out of context by the media.

Speaking at the inauguration of a redevelopment project, Thackeray recalled dialogue from Hindi blockbuster “Dabangg” – “Thappad se dar nahi lagta (not scared of being slapped)” –and said, “Nobody should speak the language of slapping us as we will give back such a tight slap that the other person will not be able to get back on his feet.”

Asking the beneficiaries of the chawls redevelopment project not to fall prey to allurement once the project gets over, he said, “Marathi culture must be protected in the redeveloped constructions at any cost as the chawls had a historic legacy, where revolutionaries had laid down their lives and also were witness to the Samyukta Maharashtra movement.”

NCP chief Sharad Pawar, who was also present at the event, said the legacy of BDD Chawls should be protected and the Marathi-speaking people must stay back in the redeveloped houses, which would be given as part of the project being overseen by Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA).

He also praised Thackeray for efficient handling of the COVID-19 situation and the recent floods in several parts of the state caused by torrential rain.
