Maharashtra Cabinet Minister Aaditya Thackeray denies any connection to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death
The Indian politician has rejected any involvement in the late actor’s death
Aaditya Thackeray is the newest in the list of notable figures in the firing line over Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. Thackeray is known to associate with a lot of Bollywood’s elite, but denies any involvement with the tragic death of Sushant.
Thackeray called the accusation “dirty politics” and in a Twitter statement reinforced he is not involved in the case at all. Although he is linked with some of Bollywood’s most powerful members, he defends his relationships with them, adding it is not a crime.
Thackeray went on to say, “Those who are pricked by the success and popularity of the Maharashtra government have started dirty politics over the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. Unnecessary mud slinging on me and the Thackeray family. This is nothing but dirty politics arisen out of frustration.”
Aaditya Thackeray was at a party the night before Rajput died, and it is said that his fellow political leaders were displeased with his social choices.
With no evidence of any involvement, Thackeray remains to continue working as a normal, with a heavy focus on social issues in Maharashtra. He stated he would “never do anything” to damage the prestige of Maharashtra, Shiv Sena and the Thackeray family.
“I am not even remotely connected to the case. I wish to say as the grandson of Hinduruday Samrat Balasaheb Thackeray, that I will never do anything that would hurt the prestige of Maharashtra, Shiv Sena and Thackeray family. The people who are levelling baseless allegations should understand this,” Aditya said in his Tweet.
This appears to be the first and last time that Aaditya will speak on the controversy.
