Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar: Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Aaditya Thackeray on Sunday said BJP gets upset whenever it is confronted with questions.For how many days will the BJP lie to the public? When confronted with questions, it gets angry, he said, stepping up his attack on the rival politicians going on foreign trips.Speaking to reporters at Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar, Thackeray reiterated that Maharashtra industries minister Uday Samants Davos inspection visit was a sham. The World Economic Forum meeting in Davos is scheduled in January. Why is the minister visiting Davos now? he asked.Thackeray said he had compelled the state government to speak the truth on the wagh nakh used by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. After I raised questions, the government came out with a new GR. Shivaji Maharaj is revered, and a temple should be built for the wagh nakh if it is permanently coming to India. The government should not play with sentiments, he said.Thackeray added the cheap language used against him by BJP leaders was an expression of their frustration. The BJP camp had referred to him as Aadu Bal (kid) in a political spat that erupted over foreign tours of ruling party leaders. Thackeray said he was proud to be called Bal as it was the first name of his grandfather and Sena founder Bal Thackeray.
