Bal Thackeray's health worsens, Uddhav meets Shiv Sena MPs, MLAs
Clean Media Correspondent

MUMBAI, Nov 02 (CMC) Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray held a meeting of party MPs and legislators on Friday afternoon amid reports of deteriorating health of saffron outfit's patriarch Bal Thackeray.

Normally a meeting of party MPs is held just ahead of Parliament session but in this case, the winter session is almost three weeks away, so there was speculation over the reason for calling the meeting.

The meeting assumes significance owing to reports about 86-year-old Thackeray's condition.

Thackeray, who founded the Shiv Sena in 1966, has not been keeping well and, at a Dussehra rally here last week, he addressed party workers via a recorded video message, asking them to support his son Uddhav and grandson Aditya.

"I have collapsed physically...I can't walk...I am tired," he had said in what was seen by many as an indication of his retirement from public life.

On Thursday, Thackeray's nephew, Raj, who formed MNS in 2006, met the ailing Sena chief, his fourth meeting in as many months.
