Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray’s son and Yuva Sena chief Aaditya Thackeray said he has never kept himself away from the electoral politics and that he is willing to fight polls if the situation so warrants. Aaditya said that his grandfather and party founder Bal Thackeray had taken a decision never to contest an election but he had never imposed his decision on other family members. His father Uddhav also stayed away from electoral politics however, Indian Express has reported that Aditya is not averse to contest an assembly election.

Ahead of elections to the crucial Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) next week, the Sena scion has been campaigning across Mumbai over the past week. He also stated that there is tremendous work that can be done as a member of the Legislative Assembly.

For the first time in nearly 20 years, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Shiv Sena are contesting the BMC poll against each other. Aaditya said he was disappointed with the BJP-led state government’s clamour to take credit for various development work. He said that the government has become a Twitter government and the credit war has become cheap.”They tweet out things, saying we are with this company and so many jobs have been created. After three years, there are no jobs created,” he said. He also slammed the rival’s behaviour and said that BJP’s attempt to take credit for the Metro Rail built by the previous Congress government was very childish.

Both the front-runners for the critical BMC elections has been heaping accusations against the other. BJP campaign which is led by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has charged the Sena with being unwilling to bring in transparency into the functioning of the BMC. On the other hand, Uddhav Thackeray accused the BJP of insulting its alliance partner in the state government before he unilaterally called off seat-sharing talks for the civic polls.

And said that no Sena leader has created a business empire for himself as leaders from other parties have. Aaditya said that on the hand hand, Sena has created wealth for the people.
