MUMBAI: The Shiv Sena has appointed former Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi, who recently joined the Uddhav Thackeray-led party, as its "Upneta" or deputy leader.

Speaking to a Marathi news channel, Chaturvedi said it was time to "change Sena's history of Hindi-speaking leaders not staying in the party for long".

"I had changed history in the Congress 10 years back when I went on to become the national spokesperson of that party from a district general secretary of Youth Congress. This was unheard of in the party before," she claimed.
