Shiv Sena to pitch roaring cub Aaditya Thackeray as Deputy Chief Minister
| Thursday | 13th June, 2019
In a departure from its policy to not vie for an official post, the Shiv Sena is set to pitch Thackeray scion Aaditya's name for the state Deputy Chief Minister's seat in the proposed cabinet expansion slated for June 14 or 15.
Insiders say a high-level dialogue is on between the Sena leadership and Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to convince ally BJP about the move.
This comes at a time when the party is pitted against its frenemy, a buoyant BJP with 23 Lok Sabha seats — five more than Sena.
The party doesn't have a single young leader to pitch, besides Uddhav Thackeray, as the CM candidate.
The Sena chief has so far stayed off electoral politics, in keeping with his father and Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray's policy.
