Late Bal Thackeray may have given Uddhav Thackeray the 'remote control' of power but Uddhav has handed it over to me, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said in Mumbai on Saturday.

"Now that (Shiv Sena president) Uddhav Thackeray has handed over the remote control (of power) to me, other (Sena) ministers should also understand this," Fadnavis said, in an apparent reference to some Shiv Sena ministers, criticising his style of functioning. Shiv Sena was founded by Bal Thackeray.
Fadnavis was speaking at an event organised on the occasion of Bal Thackeray's birth anniversary today where the state road transport corporation (MSRTC) unveiled 'Shivshahi' luxury bus service.
This alliance (BJP-Shiv Sena) government will govern the state for the full five year term, irrespective of what some may say or think, Fadnavis said. Uddhav Thackeray lauded Maharashtra transport minister Diwakar Raote of Sena for introducing the 'Shivshahi' bus service.
