Shiv Sena Chairman Uddhav Thackeray said on Thursday that the Supreme Court’s decision on the petitions filed by his factions and those of Eknath Shinde will determine the future of democracy in India. The former Maharashtra chief minister said there were ups and downs in politics. I am happy that people of different ideologies are joining the Shiv Sena. The need of the hour is to protect the Constitution.
Thackeray was speaking to Shiv Sena workers at his ‘Matoshree’ residence here after inducting environmental activists Sushma Andhare and Prashant Surve into the party. Surve is the ex-husband of Shiv Sena rebel party MP Bhavna Gawli. Thackeray said: “Shiv Sena is waging a legal and constitutional battle. The Supreme Court decision will not only decide the future of the party but also the future of democracy in the country. He said the agenda of the Hindutva of the Shiv Sena is nationalistic.
Shiv Sena helped make ordinary people extraordinary
Taunting rebel MPs and MPs who supported Chief Minister Shinde, Thackeray said Shiv Sena helped ordinary people become extraordinary, but those lawmakers left the party. He said now is the time to seek out more ordinary people and help them realize their potential. We are rebuilding our true Shiv Sena. I want to focus on the leadership potential of rural women. He announced that Sushma Andhare would be the deputy leader of the party.
Raut said what Prashant Surve will do
Shiv Sena MP Vinayak Raut said Prashant Surve, who works in the aviation sector, will manage the party’s activities in Washim district. Asked about Gawli, a Washim MP who moved to Eknath Shinde camp, Surve said their relationship ended ten years ago. At least six petitions have been filed in the Supreme Court on different issues after the Shinde rebellion and the fall of the Maharashtra government led by Thackeray.
