Submission of nomination papers was preceded by a roadshow by Shiv Sena workers in the Lower Parel and Worli areas of the city
Shiv Sena leader Aaditya Thackeray on October 3 filed his nomination from the Worli Assembly constituency in Mumbai.
Maharashtra will head for polling on October 21, along with Haryana. Couting of votes in both states will happen on October 25.
Flanked by father and Sena president Uddhav Thackeray and mother Rashmi, Aaditya submitted the nomination papers to the Returning Officer, becoming the first in his family to take the electoral plunge.
This was preceded by a roadshow by Shiv Sena workers in the Lower Parel and Worli areas of the city.

"My father (Bal Thackeray) used to say that he won't contest polls. I also say that I won't contest elections. But this (Aaditya's) is the new generation, which will take the state forward," Uddhav said.(With inputs from PTI)The Great Diwali Discount!
