A day after Yuva Sena chief Aaditya Thackeray and his estranged uncle Raj Thackeray’s son, Amit were seen together at a programme here, the Shiv Sena today sought to play down their coming together. The photographs of yesterday’s meeting of Aaditya, son of Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, and Amit went viral amid a buzz that the two engaged in some political talks.
The Shiv Sena in a statement clarified that Aaditya had gone to attend a programme where Amit was also present.
“Aaditya’s appointment was sought by organisers of a sports event, as he is a chairman of Mumbai District Football Association. Amit was incidentally there, hence they met. Some 10-12 other persons were also present there. There is nothing to read into it,” Sena spokesperson Harshal Pradhan said. “There was no discussion on politics, either,” he said.
