Politics make for strange bedfellows. Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray skipped HD Kumarswamy’s swearing-in ceremony in Karnataka on Wednesday to spend time in his own backyard, to take on Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Aditynath in the Palghar by-poll campaign. Despite being allies in Maharashtra, the Sena is pitted against BJP in the Palghar bypolls that are slated for May 28. Former PM and JD(S) leader HD Deve Gowda had called Thackeray on Tuesday and invited him for his son’s oath-taking ceremony. However, Thackeray expressed his inability due to prior engagement.  “Uddhavji told him he was very busy with the Palghar bypoll and hence, would not be able to attend the ceremony.
