Mumbai, Oct 9 (UNI) Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray today clarified that he was not aspiring to become Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
The clarification was published in the Party's Marathi daily ''Saamna'', in wake of the reports published in a section of media that junior Thackeray was the Party's Chief Ministerial candidate, in case Shiv Sena-BJP coalition comes to power in the state in the assembly elections next year.
Retaliating to Maharashtra Navnirman Sena president Raj Thackeray's recent statements that Shiv Sena was not being run by Bal Thackeray, Mr Thackeray, albeit without naming him, said the decision about Party's Chief Ministerial candidate would be taken by the senior Thackeray.
He has alleged that the situation in Maharashtra has deteriorated during the nine-year-rule of Congress-NCP.
According to him the state was No.1 in terms of farmers' suicides, closing down of industries and complete breakdown of law and order.
He asserted that Shiv Sena would try to change the situation after coming to power.
