Also, the presence of Aditya Thackeray, who is just an MLA, and his cousin Varun Sardesai at the meetings that Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray with key officials is also raising hackles. Varun is not even an MLA. In what capacity did both attend the meeting is a question and many are questioning their presence in the meeting. The pic of Varun and Aditya attending the key government meeting was shared on Twitter by a journalist and several netizens have raised questions about it.
"Is this @AUThackeray having any ministerial post or any government officer at current situation..?
Its wrong thing," asked a Twitterati. Another suggested: Dear @CMOMaharashtra , if you want Aditya Thackeray to attend all meetings, ask him to resign as MLA & appoint him as your OSD / PS / PA.That way he can 'officially' attend meetings & you too will get a safe seat (since Sena anyways lost Bandra East).
Varun Sardesai, who calls him a wannabe Neta, is a core committee member of the Yuva Sena, the youth wing of the party. But he is neither an MLA nor has a position in the CMO.
