Maha CM now venturing out due to constant criticism: BJP

Maharashtra BJP chief Chandrakant Patil on Sunday took a dig at Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray saying that he is now venturing out of his house as he is continuously being criticised by the opposition party for not going out due to the pandemic.
