Mumbai civic body poll: Uddhav Sena seeks Tejashwi Yadav's support for Bihari votes
Patna/IBNS: Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav is likely to campaign for the Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) for the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) elections, media reports said.
This comes after Sena leader and Uddhav Thackeray’s son Aditya Thackeray met the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader in Patna on Monday.
According to media reports, Thackeray approached the Bihar Deputy CM seeking his support in the BMC elections where Shiv Sena’s Uddhav Thackeray faction is likely to face stern opposition from bitter rival Eknath Shinde, who split the party and became Maharashtra’s CM.
