Aditya Thackeray to head youth wing of Shiv Sena

Life seems to have come a full circle for Bal Thackeray as the third generation of the Thackeray family was launched into the political arena on Sunday.

Bala Sahib\'s grandson — Aditya Thakeray will now be spear heading the Yuva Sena, the youth wing of the Shiv Sena after Bal Thackeray introduced his grandson, Aditya Thackeray, to active politics on Sunday.

Bal Thackeray, who has always criticized the dynastic politics of the Congress family said, "I don\'t believe in dynastic rule. Uddhav was elected by Shiv Sainiks not me. I will never force my family members to join Sena."

Observers say Shiv Sena has decided to launch a youth wing under Aditya mainly to counter the growing influence of Raj Thackeray \'s Maharashtra Navnirman Sena among the Maharashrian youth. Sena feels it has too many leaders over the age of 50 and they hold no appeal among youngsters. Young Aditya hopes to solve that problem.

Aditya hasn\'t begun his political career on a high note. Now the onus is on him to create an identity that can match his grand entry.
