The viral claim is false that Aditya Thackeray went to Ajmer Dargah seeking a vow to become CM after the Maharashtra Assembly elections. The viral picture is 4 months old. 

The results of the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly election came on October 24, but so far no decision has been made on who will be the next chief minister. After that, a photo of Shiv Sena's Aditya Thackeray is going viral on social media with a claim that after the Maharashtra Assembly elections, Aditya Thackeray went to Ajmer Dargah seeking a vow to become CM.

A twitter user name Gaurav Pradhan uploaded a photo of Shiv Sena leader Aditya Thackeray with a caption "Bala Saheb died again today Well done @ShivSena"

The text in Hindi on the photo reads "Rahul Gandhi of Shiv Sena visited Ajmer Sharif Dargah today seeking a vow to become CM. Bala Saheb died again today".
