“All the political parties have to have to rethink about supplying importance to the folks who use this sort of language. Even if the BJP is angry and hates Uddhav Thackeray, applying these types of language in opposition to the chief minister is unfortunate and will have to be condemned,” Patil explained when questioned if the normal of politics is likely down.
