Uddhav Thackeray elected as Shiv Sena president

News from Mumbai, Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday formally elected as the President of Shiv Sena during its national executive meeting held here.

Addressing to media, senior party leader Subhash Desai said, “Uddhav Thackeray 52, was unanimously elected the president of the party. Henceforth, all policy decisions of the party will be taken by him. He has been authorised to appoint a person in the party.”

Mr. Desai was addressing media at Shiv Sena Bhawan, situated at Dadar in central Mumbai.

He further told media that the election officer Balakrishna Joshi has completed the electoral steps to elect Uddhav Thackeray as the Shiv Sena President.

Mr. Desai said, “From now on, there will be no post of Shiv Sena ‘pramukh’, which was held by late party supremo Bal Thackeray for over four decades.”

He added, “Even the executive president’s post will not be there in Shiv Sena.”

He said, “In his address, Uddhavji urged party leaders to focus on 2014 state Assembly elections so as to win more seats to dethrone the Congress-NCP alliance.”

“A vacuum has definitely being created due to the demise of Bal Thackeray. However, we all have pledged that we will strengthen the organisation to fill the void,” Desai added.

However, many Shiv Sena supporters were demanding Uddhav’s son and Yuva Sena chief Aditya Thackeray to give a post in the party, but no particular post was give to him.

Uddhav Thackeray paid homage to Bal Thackeray who passed away on November 17 last year. Sena MP Sanjay Raut said, “Uddhavji assured party leaders that no MP or MLA will defect from the party.”
