Uddhav Thackeray opened up about Sushant Singh Rajput's death after nearly six months, in Sena's editorial called Saamana. The CM of Maharashtra while talking about SSR's death expressed grief and added that some people are playing dirty politics over it.
Uddhav Thackeray was asked about SSR's death, the involvement of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the case and it's absence in news since Bihar elections (Sushant's birthplace) . Sharing his viewpoint Thackeray said, "What can I say, I sympathize with the tragedy. The people who are trying to gain something from someone's death are not worthy of being in politics. A young man unfortunately lost his life."
He also presented some questions, and said "Do you want to play politics on that man's death? How much more can you fall down? These politics are the worst of its kind. If you want to be called a man, then fight like one. Unfortunately a man lost his life and all you think about is playing politics soon after? Are you trying to earn two minutes of fame over a dead man? Is this what your true nature is?"
