Bal Thackeray’s health has improved: Shiv Sena
Mumbai: Shiv Sena on Friday sought to allay fears that its chief, Bal Thackeray’s condition has deteriorated further.
In fact, at a press conference the party said that Bal Thackeray’s condition had improved and that he would himself reply to the opposition in his style about his health fears.
The Shiv Sena, which today held a meeting of its MPs and MLAs in Mumbai before the Winter Session of both Lok Sabha and state Assembly, denied the meeting was called to discuss the party chief’s worsening health condition.
The ‘emergency’ meeting was called by Bal Thackeray’s son and party executive president Uddhav.
Thackeray’s nephew and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray had yesterday met his ailing uncle. Maharashtra minister and senior NCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal also went to see ailing Shiv Sena supremo and enquired about his health.
Bal Thackeray, who founded the party in 1966, has not been keeping well. At a Dussehra rally held in Mumbai last week, he addressed Sena workers via video conference, and asked them to support his son Uddhav and grandson Aditya.
"I have collapsed physically...I can`t walk...I am tired," he said.
Raj, who formed his own political party in 2006 after Uddhav was made the Sena chief, later reconciled with his uncle in July, when Uddhav was hospitalised with heart problems.
Bal Thackeray had reportedly phoned him and asked him to attend to Uddhav.
Raj has met with Bal Thackeray four times in the last four months, triggering speculations that the MNS may soon merge with the Shiv Sena or work closely with it in the near future.
Next Assembly Elections in Maharashtra would be held in 2014.
