Speaking to ANI after addressing a rally here, Aaditya also attacked former Maharashtra Chief Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Devendra Fadnavis over his comment on Maha Vikash Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra for backing Nawab Malik.
"I do not give much importance to his (Devendra Fadnavis) statement. Now you see that he is disappointed and frustrated. He speaks whatever comes to his mind. MVA is together. The people of Maharashtra are with us and we will continue to move forward and do for the welfare of the public," Aaditya said.
Asked if Shiv Sena planning another MVA like coalition in Uttar Pradesh, where the party contesting its 37 candidates from different Assembly constituencies for the first time, Aaditya said "Shiv Sena's victory is certain in Dumariyaganj".

"People's enthusiasm for Shiv Sena and their anger is evident on the Uttar Pradesh government," said Aaditya.
