Mumbai :- The Shiv Sena youth icon and the party nominee for Worli assembly constituency, Aaditya Thackeray took out a huge roadshow in Mumbai today before filing his nomination papers to contest the election. Aaditya is the first of his family to contest an election in the five decades since his grandfather Balasaheb Thackeray founded the Shiv Sena.
Junior Thackeray was seen waving, against the backdrop of his posters and saffron Sena pennants held up by workers, as his open top jeep glided through a narrow street in Mumbai. The occasion became a huge show of strength for the Shiv Sena, which has been pitching him as the party’s chief ministerial face. The young Sena leader began the road show from a Shiv Sena office in Lower Parel and ended it at the BMC Engineering Hub in Worli, where he filed his nomination papers.
He declared assets of Rs 16.05-crore on Thursday as he filed nomination from Worli Assembly constituency here. The affidavit filed by him before the returning officer says Aaditya has movable assets of Rs 11.38-crore and immovable assets of Rs 4.67-crore. It includes bank deposits of Rs 10.36 crore and a car (BMW) worth Rs 6.50 lakh.
Sena youth wing chief also owns jewellery, bullion and other valuables worth Rs 64.65 lakh. He did his Bachelor of Arts in 2011 and acquired `Bachelor of Laws’ degree in 2015, the affidavit said and claimed that he has no criminal cases pending against him.
