Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath is on a two days visit to Mumbai in order to meet industrialists and personalities from the film industry. He also listed Rs 220 crore Lucknow Municipal Corporation bonad at Bombay Stock Exchange.
Yogi had earlier revealed his ambitious plan to set a film city in Uttar Pradesh and he also offered film fraternity lots of discounts on their procent if they come to UP.
In response to CM Yogi, Shiv Sena hit back by saying that it’s not easy to shift Mumbai’s Film City elsewhere.
Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray said, “We are not jealous if someone progresses, we do not have any problem with someone’s progress if one competes. But if you are going to forcibly take anything away, then of course, I won’t let it happen and you (industrialists) will not be willing to go,”
“Some people are coming today, they will also meet you all and ask you to come (for investments). But they do not know the magnetic strength (of Maharashtra), it is so powerful that they forget people going from here to there, it should not so happen that somebody from there comes here,” he added.
The Maharashtra Chief Minister had earlier warned against attempts to malign or finish off the film industry from Mumbai.
