Giving a shock to NCP chief Sharad Pawar, Nationalist Congress Party(NCP) leader, Sachin Ahir, joined the Shiv Sena on Thursday. The move is said to be a big blow to the opposition in Maharashtra where the State is gearing up to face assembly election soon.In the ceremony which inducts Sachin Ahir, who was NCP's Mumbai chief, into Shiv Sena, many leaders of Shiv Sena also participated its leader Uddhav Thackeray and his son Aditya Thackeray.

It is said that some differences of opinions with Sharad Pawar has led Ahir to take such an extreme step. Ahir was a cabinet minister in the previous Congress-NCP government in Maharashtra.With this, Shiv Sena will get stronger in an area like Worli in Mumbai, where it has a strong cadre base.
