Apart from other party leaders, BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis and NCP’s Sharad Pawar also paid rich tributes to the Shiv Sena founder earlier in the day.
Born on January 23, 1926, in Pune, Thackeray had begun his professional career as a cartoonist with the English-language daily ‘The Free Press Journal’.

He later quit his professional job and founded the Shiv Sena in 1966 to advocate for the interests of the people of Maharashtra in Mumbai’s political and professional landscape.
