A proposal to install a life-size memorial of Shiv Sena patriarch Balasaheb Thackeray has been brought forward by his followers.
Shiv Sena former mayor Ashok Vaity on Monday moved the proposal and was supported among others by Shiv Sena leader Santosh Wadavale, Deputy Mayor Milind Patankar, Leader of the House Naresh Mhaske and Leader of the Opposition Hanumant Jagdale.
The plan is to install Thackeray’s statue in front of the Thane Municipal Corporation headquarters.
Vaity placed the proposal at the general body meeting of the Corporation, stating that it would be a befitting tribute to the Sena patriarch. The proposal was seconded by the Shiv Sena leader Santosh Wadavale and supported by Deputy Mayor Milind Patankar, Leader of the House Naresh Mhaske and Leader of the Opposition Hanumant Jagdale among others.
Vaity said that TMC was the first civic body, where the Sena came to power in the 70s.
