Uddhav, who addressed a ‘jallosh’ (victory celebration) rally of party workers and 18-newly elected Sena Lok Sabha members in suburban Andheri on Sunday night, said the next target would be state Assembly polls due in four months.

He attributed party’s success in the Lok Sabha polls to the vision of late Thackeray.

He refrained from commenting on his cousin MNS chief Raj Thackeray's decision to contest the assembly elections.

Promising to turn Mumbai into a global city, Uddhav said Sena would help streamline Mumbai's infrastructure projects.

Sena veteran Manohar Joshi, who was booed off stage at the party's dusehra rally last year by its workers who were upset with him for questioning Uddhav's leadership, was present on stage.

Though Uddhav did not speak about his contesting Assembly poll or chief ministerial ambitions, media reports quoted party spokesperson Sanjay Raut as saying that the Sena president would be nominee for the chief minister’s post.
