However, he will be represented by senior MP Priyanka Chaturvedi at the first major Opposition parties’ public meeting in Jharkhand state, to be held at the Prabhat Tara ground in the state capital.

Thackeray’s absence is attributed to certain prior election-related and party commitments in Maharashtra where the Shiv Sena (UBT) is contesting 21 Lok Sabha seats.
