Rajya Sabha MP and Sena leader Sanjay Raut said the Sena wants its president Uddhav Thackeray to be the chief minister.

The Shiv Sena will fulfill the promise made to its founder Bal Thackeray of having a Maharashtra chief minister from the party, its leader Sanjay Raut said on Sunday. "We will do anything for Balasaheb. The government will be formed in the state. The promise which Uddhav Ji made to Balasaheb, that there will be a chief minister from Shiv will soon see that the chief minister will be from Shiv Sena," he told reporters in Mumbai after paying tributes to the late party supremo on his seventh death anniversary at Shivaji Park here.

Apart from other party leaders, BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis and NCP chief Sharad Pawar also paid their tributes to the Bal Thackeray earlier in the day. Uddhav, his wife Rashmi and son Aaditya Thackeray also paid their obeisance to the late party supremo.
