Today is the birth anniversary of Shiv Sena founder Bala Saheb Thackeray, who dominates Maharashtra's politics. To pay tribute to Balasaheb, Shiv Sena activists have organized a tribute meeting at Shivaji Park. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also paid tribute to Balasaheb Thackeray by tweeting him on his birth anniversary. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh also bowed down to Bala Saheb Thackeray, saying that he was a leader who was known for his stature and not his position.
The Prime Minister tweeted and paid tribute to the great Balasaheb Thackeray on his birth anniversary. Courageous and unstoppable, he never hesitated to raise public welfare issues. He was always proud of Indian ethos and values. He is an inspiration to millions of people.
Bal Thackeray was born on 23 January 1926 in Pune. His father Keshav Thackeray was a journalist. Bala Saheb Thackeray also started his career as a cartoonist. He made cartoons of many politicians during his career and gradually got himself into politics.
Balasaheb Thackeray never isolated himself from national issues despite regional politics. His clear statement about the security of the country, including the Bangladeshi infiltrators, brought him national identity. Even when the disputed structure was demolished in Ayodhya, Bal Thackeray sobbed and said that yes, our Shiv Sainiks have demolished this structure.
