Mumbai, Feb 17: In an attempt to revive the vibrant nightlife of country's commercial capital Mumbai, Yuva Sena chief Aaditya Thackeray has discussed the plans with Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

Shift in Shiv Sena's ideology?
This development also hints towards a significant shift in right wing Shiv Sena's ideologies' which was once considered as a conservative party. Shiv Sena is known for its right wing or pro-Hindutva ideology and was once against the influence of western culture on Indian youth and society.

"I had a meeting with @CMOMaharashtra on my proposal for #MumbaiNightLife. I will tweet details soon, good news," he posted on Twitter yesterday.

"Necessary laws would be amended so that the financial capital can have a nightlife by the end of the year," he later told a TV channel.

The 1.30 am deadline for restaurants and bars is likely to be discarded after the laws are amended, 24-year-old Aaditya, the son of Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, said.

"Malls, clubs could stay open 24X7, along with chemists and convenience stores," he tweeted earlier.

Non-residential areas like Kala Ghoda, Nariman Point, BKC can be Special Entertainment Zones at night, he added.

"Eateries, Cafes, Milk Shops, Chemists and Malls and Mill-Malls (with all their establishments) can be given the option of staying open," he had said in a tweet.

Aaditya had also recently on Twitter thanked Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria "for his nod to the proposal of nightlife".
