Expressing satisfaction over the results of civic polls in Mumbai and elsewhere in Maharashtra, Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray told reporters outside Matoshri residence in suburban Bandra on Friday that he was "overwhelmed".
"I thank people for reposing faith in me and my party. Today is a good day. Let me celebrate it. I am overwhelmed," he said.
Shiv Sena-BJP-RPI alliance has emerged as the biggest group in the Mumbai corporation and is likely to retain the power. The grouping has got similar success in the neighbouring Thane city.
"I don't want to comment on what the CM has said (now). I want to celebrate this win," Uddhav said.
Chief minister Prithviraj Chavan had said during the campaign that Shiv Sena would become inconsequential after the results of Mumbai polls.
This was not a small victory, Uddhav said.
"Congress and NCP were united against us, yet we managed the win," he added.
