Devendra Fadnavis’ Tweet On Delhi Metro Ride Sparks Row In Maharashtra

An innocuous tweet by BJP’s Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis taking a swipe at the Maharashtra government on the Mumbai Metro, ignited another war of words in the state on Thursday.Late on Wednesday, Fadnavis took a ride on the Delhi Metro and posted his photos with a mocking comment on Twitter targeting the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) alliance government back home.
“I travelled in Delhi Metro today to return back to the airport and reached in a very short span as compared to travel by road!” Fadnavis tweeted.He added: “Don’t know when will I be able to travel in Mumbai Metro 3 to the airport, looking at the things messed up by the MVA on car shed issues.”
The sarcasm was not lost on the ruling MVA partners – Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party, and Congress which hit back vigorously and unitedly.Maharashtra Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant said he was glad that Fadnavis appreciated the “Delhi Metro, developed by the Congress government.”
