“I was never politically inclined. I came into politics to assist my father. an epidemic after 100 years happened during my tenure as chief minister. I even have never shied faraway from responsibility. i'm doing what I can to the simplest of my ability,” Thackeray said. Thackeray led the charge as Maharashtra saw an outsized number of daily deaths and cases during the second wave of the pandemic.
