Shiv Sena has been pitching Aaditya Thackeray as the face of Chief Minister of Maharashtra. Last week, Uddhav Thackeray had recalled the “promise” he had made to his late father to put a ‘Shiv Sainik’ (party worker) as the chief minister of Maharashtra.
Aaditya’s roadshow began from his party office located in Lower Parel and ended it at the BMC Engineering Hub in Worli, where he filed his nomination papers for the upcoming election.
Addressing a gathering of party activists, Aaditya said, “I love politics since childhood as I used to tour with my grandfather and father. Whenever my friends and others questioned me asking what else I can do, I told them I can’t do anything else but politics. To do something new, politics is the only medium that can change the lives of crores of people.”
If you go to Worli, where Shiv Sena is said to have a stronghold and have only one opposition party NCP, you will see plenty of hoarding of Aditya Thackeray in many languages such as Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati and Urdu appealing the non-Maharashtrian to vote for Aaditya.
