Poster outside Matoshree projects Aditya Thackarey as next Maharashtra CM
Mumbai : Shiv Sena leader and son of the party chief Uddhav Thackeray, Aditya, can be seen projected as the next Chief Minister of Maharashtra in a poster put up outside their Mumbai residence on Saturday.
The poster has appeared on a day when one of the Shiv Sena MLA said that he would want to see Aditya Thackeray taking up the CM post in power-sharing agreement with the BJP.
“Chief Minister of Maharashtra only Aaditya Thackeray,” said the poster put outside Matoshree- the Bandra residence of Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray.
A similar post was seen on Friday in Worli constituency from where Aaditya Thackeray won the election by nothing less than 70 thousand votes.
The poster feeds into Sena MLAs demand, for a party candidate to share the chief ministerial position with the BJP, raised in a meeting with Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday.
Shiv Sena MLAs on Saturday clearly formulated party’s desire by insisting BJP adhered to a power-sharing deal allegedly struck with Sena before the April-May general elections.
Shiv Sena legislator Pratap Sarnaik said that Udhhav Thackeray should get written assurance from the alliance partner BJP that they will get a chance to run the government for a 2.5-year term each.
"All the legislators have decided to give all the powers to make decision to Uddhav ji. It was decided that the central leadership of the BJP should honour the pact of 50:50 power sharing agreement, including the split of CM post. We want it in writing from the BJP," Sarnaik said.
The BJP-Shiv Sena alliance won the Maharashtra assembly polls with Sena winning 56 out of the 124 seats contested and the BJP winning 105 out of the 164 seats it fought.
