Uddhav Thackeray was elevated to the Shiv Sena’s president post in 2013 after his father Balasaheb’s death in November 2012. Under Uddhav’s leadership, the Shiv Sena shared power at the Centre and in Maharashtra with the BJP for 5 years.
The Shiv Sena, which was the oldest ally of the BJP, parted ways with the BJP after the assembly elections in November 2019. It then allied with arch-rivals Congress and NCP to form an alliance government in Maharashtra. The three parties government in Maharashtra is headed by Uddhav Thackeray. He took oath as the CM on November 28, 2019.
