Chief Minister of Maharashtra Shri Uddhav Thackeray is celebrating his 60th birthday today. He was born in 1960. Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray on his birthday on Monday and wished him a long life and healthy life.
Modi tweeted, “Happy Birthday to the Chief Minister of Maharashtra Shri Uddhav Thackeray on his birthday, I wish Uddhav ji a healthy life and longevity.”
However, Uddhav Thackeray has already announced that he will not celebrate his birthday this year, as the Corona virus crisis has affected his state the most. Maharashtra currently has the highest number of three lakh 75 thousand 799 cases of corona virus.
On the occasion of his birthday, CM Uddhav Thackeray has appealed to supporters and party workers not to wish him on his birthday. He has instead appealed to donate to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund, organize blood and plasma donate camps.
Uddhav is also the editor-in-chief of the leading Marathi newspaper Saamana, which was founded by Balasaheb Thackeray. He is the son of Shiv Sena founders Balasaheb and Meenatai Thackeray. Uddhav Thackeray is married to Rashmi Thackeray. They have two sons – Aditya and Tejas. Aditya Thackeray is the president of the Yuva Sena and is also a newly elected member of the Legislative Assembly.
Few days ago, in an interview to Saamana, Udhav Thackeray challenged the opposition to topple his government. This reaction from Thackeray came after the instability going on, in Rajasthan government. In the last Legislative elections, Udhav Thackeray has broken his alliance from the NDA,however while fighting in elections they both stood together. The dispute between the two started, when Udhav Thackeray demanded the CM seat for Shiv Sena, whereas BJP was rigid for Devendra Fadnavis. Later when the dispute increased, Shivsena withdrew its support and formed government with Congress and Pawar’s NCP. The drama in Maharashtra government went on for long, more than a month after result declaration the government has been formed.
Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot has been accusing BJP for horse trading of MLAs and said that they are trying to topple his government. Currently, Congress rule is in Rajasthan.
