Amid the ongoing political tussle in Maharashtra, BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga has filed a police complaint against Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray for breaking COVID-19 protocols. The BJP leader has demanded resignation from the Maharashtra CM for allegedly violating COVID-19-related protocols by meeting his supporters while heading to his personal residence from his official house in the state capital on Wednesday night.
Thackeray, who tested positive for the infection on Wednesday, moved out of 'Varsha', his official residence in south Mumbai, to 'Matoshree' his family home in suburban Bandra, at night - hours after offering to quit the top post amid a rebellion by Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde.
Several videos surfaced on the social media from the CM's residence where arty workers could be seen raising slogans and showering flowers on the chief minister Uddhav Thackeray as he left his official house along with his family members. In the video, Thackeray, who was wearing a face mask, could be seen stepping out of his car at Worli, the constituency of his son and Tourism minister Aaditya Thackeray, and near Matoshree and waiving at the party workers.
In the police complaint, the BJP leader has stated that a COVID patient must isolate him/herself immediately. "As per Covid protocol patient can't meet anyone and should be in isolation...CM Uddhav Thackeray broke Covid protocols and met with his supporters," Bagga said in the complaint.
