Amruta Fadnavis, Priyanka Chaturvedi indulge in Twitter spat over Sena's move to close accounts with Axis Bank

Ever since the Shiv Sena-ruled Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) decided to shut all the salary accounts it held with Axis Bank, Amruta Fadnavis and Priyanka Chaturvedi have engaged in a war of words on social media.

Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis' wife Amruta has taken Sena's move to shift accounts to a nationalised bank personally, given she is a senior employee at the bank. Hitting out at the Shiv Sena, she took to Twitter to criticise how the present government is targeting BJP leaders at a personal level.

Not one to sit silent in the face of criticism, Sena leader Priyanka Chaturvedi also targetted Amruta and her husband, in a Twitter spat that dragged on till December 29. She even urged the Maharashtra government to find out "whether any/ how much CSR was given to the BJP schemes by Axis Bank after moving the accounts?"



The bitter exchange of words ended with Amruta Fadnavis finally sharing a terse post on the social media platform that stated that having a bad leader is not Maharashtra’s fault but staying with one is.

Her tweet ended with a clarion call for all Maharashtrians: “Jaago Maharashtra”.

The verbal scuffle between the two women started last week when Amruta stepped in to defend her husband’s tweet condemning Rahul Gandhi’s “my name isn’t Rahul Savarkar” remark.

Devendra Fadnavis had said that no parallel can be drawn between Rahul Gandhi and Veer Savarkar, as the former’s contribution to India is nothing compared to that of the latter.

Amruta had then grabbed this opportunity to taunt Shiv Sena and said no one can become a “Thackeray” just by virtue of sharing the surname.

Replying to her, Priyanka Chaturvedi had said that the present Chief Minister of Maharashtra Uddhav Thackeray is, in fact, living up to his name and that the former CM’s wife is missing the point.
