Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray announced on Tuesday that he intended to unveil Bal Thackeray's memorial on his birth anniversary next year on January 23, reported PTI.


According to the agency reports, the former CM also paid a visit to the site of the memorial of the Sena founder at the mayor's bungalow in Dadar, central Mumbai. Thackrey was reportedly accompanied by his son and former Maharashtra minister, Aaditya Thackeray. 



As per reports from PTI, he asserted that the construction at the site will finish by July-end and interior work will commence in August. He said that the memorial construction is taking time since precautions had to be taken at the site, which is located just next to the Arabian Sea, as reported by PTI.


"We are looking to dedicate the memorial to people on January 23, the birth anniversary of Balasaheb Thackeray," the Shiv Sena (UBT) leader said, according to PTI.

Sena (UBT) to challenge the Mumbai North West seat result in court

Meanwhile, Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Aaditya Thackeray declared on Monday that his party would take legal action over the Mumbai North West Lok Sabha seat outcome, claiming that their candidate's victory was undercut by "misuse" of official machinery.

During a press conference, Thackeray stated that a petition regarding "electoral malpractice" would be filed in court within a day or two. He blasted the election results as "fraud," citing Shiv Sena (UBT) candidate Amol Kirtikar's narrow loss of 48 votes to Ravindra Waikar, a candidate from the Shiv Sena party led by Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde.

Thackeray questioned the election process and the use of electronic voting machines (EVMs), describing the Election Commission as "entirely compromised."

Former state minister and Sena (UBT) leader Anil Parab supported Thackeray's thoughts, requesting that the Election Commission of India act independently based on available information and declare Kirtikar the winner. Parab termed the proclaimed election result strange and stated that the party would seek legal action under the Representation of the People Act, with intentions to go to court soon.
