Senior Shiv Sena legislator Subhash Desai was unanimously elected leader of the party in the assembly by its 44 newly-elected members. In a meeting held by the Shiv Sena party at Shiv Sena Bhavan in Dadar, Senior Shiv Sena leader Subhash Desai was elected as the Shiv Sena legislature party leader. The announcement was made by Shiv Sena executive President Uddhav Thackrey. Subhash Desai was elected from Goregaon constituency in northwest Mumbai and has been associated with the party for the past three decades in various capacities. Subject to the outcome of Sena’s negotiations with alliance partner BJP, Desai may ultimately occupy the post of Leader of Opposition in the Maharashtra Assembly. Since the BJP secured more (46) seats as compared to Sena’s tally, the former is demanding the post of opposition leader. The Leader of Opposition in the outgoing assembly, Ramdas Kadam of the Sena, was defeated from Guhagar constituency last week. During the meet, Uddhav Thackrey also congratulated the newly elected MLAs and gave his best wishes to the newly elected government. He said that while they would support the development works of the government, they will also oppose those works and policies which will be opposed by the masses.
