Uddhav takes charge as Saamna editor

Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray has taken charge as editor of party mouthpiece Saamna and his father Bal Thackeray, who died on November 17, has been re-designated founder editor.

While Bal Thackeray started the Marathi daily in 1988 to communicate his views to Shiv Sainiks, its Hindi version Dopahar Ka Saamna was launched in 1993.

MP Sanjay Raut continues to be executive editor of the paper and Prem Shukla that of Dopahar Ka Saamna.

In its first editorial after the changes, Sena lashed out at Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee president Manikrao Thakre for speaking against a Thackeray memorial at Shivaji Park.

Using foul language, the edit warned Thakre against making comments about Bal Thackeray and the memorial. It said Thakre should not warn of legal action against a structure erected at the park for Thackeray cremation.

The edit said Uddhav had announced a decision on the memorial would be taken by Shiv Sainiks and the people, and others should not comment on it.
