Rashmi Uddhav Thackeray becomes Saamana editor

A Shiv Sena politician said since Uddhav Thackeray's wife Rashmi has now been entrusted with a big responsibility, she will fulfil it fully


Rashmi Thackeray, the wife of Maharashtra Chief Minister and Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, was appointed the new editor of Saamana on Sunday. The Prabodhan Prakashan-run group runs mainly daily newspapers Saamana (Marathi) and Dopahar ka Saamana (Hindi), considered official mouthpieces of Shiv Sena.

Trustees Subhash R Desai and Liladhar B and publisher Rajendra M Bhagwat made the announcement.

The publication and Shiv Sena issued and circulated among newspapers the information on Sunday that Rashmi Thackeray was the new editor. The press release mentioned the names of other trustees too.

Further, the last page of the Sunday edition of Saamana printed Rashmi Thackeray’s name as the editor.

When contacted, a party member said, “Since Rashmi Thackeray has now been entrusted with a big responsibility, she will fulfil it fully.” He, however, refused to share more details.

The new editor of Saamana was born Rashmi Patankar in an upper-class settled in Dombivli. She graduated from Vaze-Kelkar College in the late 1980s. Her skills as a journalist are untested.

Sanjay Raut, a Rajya Sabha MP of the Shiv Sena and close aide of the Thackeray family, known for his hard-hitting writing style, was the chief editor of Saamana until yesterday. He will continue to be the group’s executive editor. He will keep writing articles in the said newspaper.

When the multi-volume Marathi Saamana was founded on 23 January 1983, Bal Thackeray was its editor while the Hindi Dopahar ka Saamana was launched on 23 February 1993. Balasaheb edited Marmik as well.

Uddhav Thackeray was the editor of Saamana since 2012 when his father and the then Sena chief Balasaheb died. Uddhav resigned as the editor of Saamana on 28 November 2019 before becoming the chief minister.

After breaking the alliance with the BJP that refused to entertain Aaditya Thackeray as chief minister of Maharashtra, Shiv Sena has taken another step towards turning the party into a enterprise with the appointment of Rashmi Uddhav Thackeray as the editor of its mouthpiece.
