‘Have Come To Seek Her Blessings’: Aaditya Thackeray Reaches 10 Janpath To Invite Sonia Gandhi For Uddhav Thackeray’s Swearing-InAaditya Thackeray arrived at the residence of Congress interim Chief Sonia Gandhi to invite her for the programme.

A day ahead of Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray's swearing-in as the Maharashtra Chief Minister, his son and first-time MLA Aaditya Thackeray arrived at the residence of Congress interim Chief Sonia Gandhi to invite her for the programme.

After arriving in the national capital, he directly reached the residence of the Congress chief at 10 Janpath to invite her and Rahul Gandhi for the ceremony being organised at Shivaji Park in Mumbai on Thursday evening.

“We came here to seek her wishes and blessings for the new government. We have invited a lot of leaders,” Aaditya Thackeray told ANI after the meeting.

The part, reports say, has also invited Trinamool Congress supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Aam Aadmi Party national convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, and DMK chief MK Stalin for the swearing in.

The Shiv Sena has forged an alliance with the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) in the state after breaking away from its alliance partner BJP in the state. The path for Uddhav Thackeray was cleared after BJP's Devendra Fadnavis resigned as the Chief Minister on Tuesday, four days after he took oath as Chief Minister along with NCP supremo Sharad Pawar's nephew Ajit Pawar as his deputy.
