Shiv Sena leader Aditya Thakarey filed his nomination papers from the Worli seat today for the upcoming Assembly elections in Maharashtra. He also held a mega show of strength before filing nomination papers.
Aditya is the first in his family to contest elections since his grandfather Bal Thackeray founded the party.
The Worli seat is considered a safe seat for the Shiv Sena. Barring 2009 elections, the Shiv Sena has won every election from this seat.
The Shiv Sena is contesting elections in an agreement with the BJP.
The BJP has so far released the list of 139 candidates.
In the 2014 Assembly polls, the Sena won 63 out of the total 288 seats, second only to BJP’s 122, with both parties then contesting separately.
