Amruta Fadnavis tweeted a news clipping of a Times of India report that claimed the Sena-controlled Aurangabad Municipal corportation wants to chop down 1,000 trees for a memorial dedicated to the party patriach in Priyadarshini Park. The memorial will comprise a garden along with a statue of the Bal Thackeray, the report said.
“‘Hypocrisy is a disease ! Get well soon @ShivSena ‘ ! Tree cutting – at ur convenience or allowing tree cutting only when you earn commission – unpardonable sins !!,” she said in the tweet.
