Mumbai: Sitting Shiv Sena MP Gajanan Kirtikar's wife, Meghana, on Monday, said she disapproved of her husband's decision to join the party led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and voted for her son, Amol, who is a candidate of Shiv Sena (UBT) in the Mumbai North West Lok Sabha constituency.

Following the split in the Shiv Sena, Gajanan Kirtikar sided with Shinde. His son Amol stayed loyal to Uddhav Thackeray and is contesting against Shiv Sena's Ravindra Waikar in the Mumbai North West seat.

Gajanan Kirtikar, his wife Meghana and their daughter exercised their franchise.

Speaking to reporters, Meghana Kirtikar said, "I never supported my husband's decision to join the Shinde faction. I had asked him why he would salute Shinde, who is junior to him. I have voted for my son, and he will win with a huge margin."

As a father, Gajanan Kirtikar has given his blessing to Amol, she said.

When reporters sought his reaction, the MP said, "Not only my wife, but my daughter was also against me joining the Shinde-led Shiv Sena. I did not join the party for fear of the Enforcement Directorate or for money. My reasons were different, and I had made it clear."

Incidentally, after his candidature for the Lok Sabha election was announced, Amol was served a notice by the Enforcement Directorate for his alleged involvement in the Khichdi scam.
