Three years back, on November 17, 2012, the Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray died at the age of 86. "Balasaheb" was committed to the well being of people. He was widely admired by Karyakartas. Paying tribute to him on his Punya Tithi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted:

Joining the PM, Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis announced that a memorial will be built for the late Shiv Sena chief.

"The government has selected the Mayor's bungalow as the spot to build Bala Saheb's memorial. A foundation will also be set up and will be headed by Uddhavji," he added.

On Twitter, however, the mood was less sombre.
