New Delhi: Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has recently chaired a meeting of the state bureaucrats. One photo of the meeting has gone viral for all the wrong reasons. Apart from son Aaditya Thackeray, Yuva Sena secretary Varun Sardesai was seen present at the meeting. Aaditya is still an MLA, but why Varun, who is also a nephew of Uddhav? As social media raised the uncomfortable question, Varun said it’s the CM’s prerogative to decide who will attend his meeting or not.


“It was a tourism development meeting and what was discussed there is already in public domain. The meeting was not related to sensitive information pertaining to the Home department,” he said.

Devendra Fadnavis’ wife Amruta Fadnavis had also attended official meetings when the BJP leader occupied the top post, Sardesai said.
