What did the district president explain after the boy’s rebellion?
There was a lot of discussion in the district when the son of Shiv Sena District Chairman rebelled. After the criticism began, District Chairman Shashikant Gade made a sensational revelation. Gade claimed that my brother and my son had been deceived by others. Gade said, my brother Ramakant Gade has nothing to do with politics. Brother Ramakant and his son Corporal Yogiraj Gade had traveled to Mumbai on the occasion of a tender for the distribution of food grains.
