Eknath Shinde breaks down in Maharashtra Assembly recalling tragic death of his 2 children

WHAT?

Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde broke down during his first speech as the CM after the smooth trust vote win. He choked up while remembering the tragic death of his 2 children Dipesh(11) & Shubhada(7). They had drowned at his ancestral village in a boating incident. 

HOW?

Shinde's older son Shrikanth is a Sena MP now. 

The CM was speaking in the Maharashtra assembly, and said, "While I was working as a Shiv Sena Corporator in Thane, I lost 2 of my children & thought everything is over...I was  broken but Anand Dighe Sahab convinced me to continue in politics."

In his maiden speech in the Assembly after winning the trust vote, an emotional Shinde, without naming the Shiv Sena, said he had been "suppressed" for a long time and spoke about how he almost became Chief Minister of the erstwhile Sena-NCP-Congress alliance government.

He said the rebellion led by him last month was a fallout of the "unfair treatment" meted out to him, an apparent reference to his decades-old association with the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena.
