Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray's son and Shiv Sena MLA Aaditya Thackeray claimed that the crowd at the Bandra station was the result of the Union government's improper planning.
"The current situation at Bandra Station, now dispersed or even the rioting in Surat is a result of the Union Govt not being able to take a call on arranging a way back home for migrant labour. They don’t want food or shelter, they want to go back home," Aaditya Thackeray said on Twitter.
Party spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi also trained her guns at the Centre. "The Union government must realise that migrant workers have largely cooperated in the past three weeks but there is impatience, urge central government besides looking at this crisis from health and economy perspective please consider the humanitarian and social side too. Happened in Surat and now in Mumbai," she said on social media.
Meanwhile, the Maharashtra CMO announced that CM Uddhav Thackeray will address a press conference at 8 PM.
