Mumbai: As the political crisis in Maharashtra continues to gain steam, screenshot of state cabinet minister Aaditya Thackeray is creating a buzz on social media with people claiming that he has dropped ‘minister’ from his Twitter bio.
Son of Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray, Aaditya, holds the post of tourism minister in the state.
His Twitter bio now reads, “Voicing the Youth, Poems and Photography: Passion. President, Yuva Sena. President- Mumbai District Football Association Instagram: adityathackeray.”
Reacting to the development, Sena leader Arvind Sawant said: “Don’t know why he removed minister from profile. Might be out of frustration over what’s happening.”
Another Shiv Sena leader Priyanka Chaturvedi shared a “fact check” saying, “He (Aaditya Thackeray) did not have his minister status ever on his Twitter bio.”
Sena MP Priyanka Chaturvedi slammed the fake news and said it was never part of Aaditya Thackeray’s Twitter bio, to begin with.
The fake news of Aaditya Thackeray dropping ‘minister’ from his bio only added fuel to the speculation that the state Assembly would be dissolved.
