MUMBAI: Shiv Sena (UBT) leader and Worli MLA Aaditya Thackeray this week wrote an emotional letter to residents of his constituency on completing three years as MLA. In his letter, Aaditya also took a dig at the BJP, without naming the party, saying that every party now wants to spend time and money in his constituency as Worli had made enviable progress.
Aaditya said that they (rival parties) too wanted to come to Worli now. In his letter, addressing Worlikars, Aaditya also hit out at the CM Eknath Shinde faction for indulging in dirty politics and betrayal.
"It has been 3 years since I was elected as your representative in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly. Your love has blessed me in these 3 years and I pray that this love and your blessings will always be with me. Before my election I promised you Worli A+. We are all working as a team to take Worli on the path of progress and prosperity in the last 3 years. Be it new bus stops, better pavements, better roads, green spaces, or immunization drives and other problem solving at community and individual level, we have been working with Worlikars," Aaditya said in his letter.
"Politically, every party also wants to spend time and money. The illegal banners they have put up in our Worli and the expenditure on it convinces me that Worli is making enviable progress and they want to come to Worli too," Aaditya added in the letter which Sena (UBT) workers have been distributing the door to door in the Worli constituency.
In the 2019 assembly polls, making his political debut, Aaditya, who is the first member from Thackeray family to contest an election, defeated his NCP rival Suresh Mane by a margin of over 70,000 votes.
"In June, the government was overthrown by dirty politics and betrayal, which was thinking about people's welfare. But they will not stop us from working selflessly and serving you. We will continue to work for your blessings and love and this will continue to energize us," Aditya said in his letter.
Aaditya said that on completion of three years as MLA, as he was answerable to his voters, he was briefing them about the works in the constituency and seeking ideas from residents regardless of whether they had voted for him or not.
