Uddhav Thackeray

Uddhav Thackeray is the executive president of the Shiv Sena, a Right wing, Marathi ethnocentric regional political party based in the Indian state of Maharashtra. He was given this role in 2004, taking over the mantle from his father and party founder, hard-line Hindu nationalist politician Balasaheb Thackeray.
Before coming to foreground Uddhav was looking after Saamana (a daily marathi news paper) and he was also involved in election campening activities. The party won the Brihan Mumbai Municipal Corporation election in 2002 under his stewardship, and he was appointed the party working president in 2003. However, differences between Thackeray and former Shiv Sena leader Narayan Rane culminated in the expulsion of Rane from the Shiv Sena. The biggest split in the Sena came when Thackeray and his cousin Raj Thackeray had a falling out, leading to Raj leaving the Shiv Sena in 2006 to form his own party, the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena.
Since 2007, Thackeray has been campaigning for debt relief to farmers in the Vidarbha region of Maharashtra where a large number of farmer suicides have taken place.

Thackeray's son Aditya is also a photographer and a budding poet with his first book of poems 'White and Black' published in May 2007. » Read more on Wikipedia.org
