Aaditya Thackeray, the son of Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, confirmed today that he will contest the October 21 Maharashtra election, which makes him the first of his family to ever fight polls. The young leader, groomed to lead the party in the future, will be the Sena's candidate from the Worli assembly constituency, a party stronghold in Mumbai. The seat is currently the Sena's. "I am contesting the elections... I have taken the big plunge. I am sure of victory as I have the blessings of you all," Aaditya Thackeray said at a Shiv Sena gathering organised for his big announcement.
