Mumbai: Irked over the "kid" remark made in an apparent reference to him by Sharad Pawar, Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray Friday lashed out at the NCP chief saying that he should first consider the age of his daughter Supriya Sule and nephew Ajit Pawar before making such comments.
"I pray to god to give good sense to Pawar. Make him remember what is the age of his daughter and nephew," Uddhav said in a statement here.

The reaction by the Sena executive president comes a day after Sharad Pawar without naming Sena chief Bal Thackeray and his son Uddhav said, "I don`t meet my senior friend these days
and I don`t talk to kids on such issues."

He made the comment when asked the reason for Shiv Sena`s opposition to the Jaitapur nuclear power project.

Uddhav further said that Pawar, who "serves" the Congress should also recall the age of the party`s general secretary Rahul Gandhi.
"The youths should now decide on whether to vote for the NCP or not in the wake of the condemnable comments against the younger generation by Pawar," he added.
