Uddhav Thackeray : :
Uddhav Thackeray is the executive president of the Shiv Sena, a regional political party based in the Indian state of Maharashtra. He was given this role in 2004, taking over the mantle from his father and party founder Bal Thackeray. Initially, he was not too keen to join politics, and instead was into art and nature. In spite of this, the party won the Brihan Mumbai Municipal Corporation election in 2002 under his stewardship, and he was appointed the party working president in 2003.
Uddhav is conducting campaigns from 2007 for debt relief to farmers in the Vidarbha region of Maharashtra. As a number of farmers committed suicide here, he is organizing this campaign.
He is a wildlife enthusiast and photographer. Often he holds exhibition of his photographs of the forest, natural themes and historical places around the world.
