Maharashtra’s political crisis: Will Shiv Sena be free from the shadow of the Thackeray family? alarm bells for other parties


The folk of Hindi resides in Kabir. Tulsi and Kabir are such fathers who are beating within the Indian public, whose say has come in the part of the giant and also of the rank. These days the political crisis of Maharashtra is calling upon Kabir to keep and understand what he said.

Kabir says-

Preetadi with worldly, Sarai na Eko work

Both went in dilemma, Maya did not meet Ram

These days the fate of Maharashtra’s biggest political face Shiv Sena President, state CM Uddhav Thackeray has become something similar. In the political dilemma, he has neither found Maya nor Ram. Neither Hindutva nor secularism remained. The situation is such that his strategy of making Shiv Sena a secular Shiv Sena to humiliate the Bharatiya Janata Party is showing disastrous results. Not only is his government in danger, there is a lot of doubt that he will be able to save the legacy of his father, Hindu Hriday Samrat Balasaheb Thackeray. They have not only lost their MLAs, they are also losing their dedicated workers.

Political commentators are surprised that Shiv Sena has witnessed the biggest rebellion ever, but Shiv Sena workers are silent. Such nature of Shiv Sainiks has never been seen, as this time it is being seen for two days. Instead of protesting against Eknath Shinde, common Shiv Sainiks are watching political developments on TV. This attitude of Shiv Sainiks is beyond the understanding of the people.

Shiv Sena also has a past which was once flaming

Remember, in the year 1991, when Chhagan Bhujbal sounded the bugle of protest against Bal Thackeray and decided to join the Congress, Shiv Sainiks attacked his residence. Bhujbal’s house was badly destroyed and he was also attacked. Similarly, when Narayan Rane rebelled in 2005, Shiv Sena workers had come on the road against him too.

Even when the news of Raj Thackeray, who is called a powerful leader, left the party after getting angry with Bal Thackeray, Shiv Sainiks had opened a front against him too. Hence, Raj was forced to go underground. But against Eknath Shinde, the Shiv Sena leader, not even the common Shiv Sena worker, is not giving any statement and no movement is taking place.

Actually, it is being said that after Uddhav became the Chief Minister, the Konkan lobby of Shiv Sena formed a circle around the Thackeray family. No Shiv Sena leader could even meet him. Even Eknath Shinde was sidelined.

However, the non-compliance of the workers on the road is pointing to a sign that Shiv Sainiks do not like Uddhav Thackeray after leaving his three-decade ally Bharatiya Janata Party with Sharad Pawar and Congress after the results of the 2019 assembly elections. came. More than that, Shiv Sena workers were not happy with what Uddhav did during his two-and-a-half-year tenure as chief minister.

It is said that Uddhav Thackeray did not go to Mantralaya and Varsha Bungalow, which was the center of power, used to be deserted during his tenure. Overall, Shiv Sena workers also became indifferent to Uddhav Thackeray’s apathy. They began to feel that Uddhav Thackeray was giving boiling water to the plant which Balasaheb had irrigated and made a banyan tree. After this the leaders-workers started getting disillusioned with Uddhav-Aditya. The voices of rebellion continued to rise in Shiv Sena and Uddhav did not even notice.

Shiv Sena in the politics of Maharashtra so far

In fact, Shiv Sena always played the role of elder brother in the Shiv Sena-BJP saffron alliance in Maharashtra in 1987, but in 2014, the number of its MLAs decreased due to lack of electoral coordination with the BJP. Uddhav did not approve of becoming the younger brother of BJP. Still, he had to play the role of a younger brother unwillingly to prevent a possible rebellion of the MLAs in the post-poll saffron alliance. Uddhav’s ego was badly hurt by this. He could not forget it.

He got an opportunity to avenge the humiliation after the BJP’s seat was reduced from 122 to 106 in the 2019 assembly election results. Despite the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance contesting the elections under the leadership of Devendra Fadnavis, he put the condition of the chief minister’s tenure of two and a half years before the BJP. The BJP, which had announced to make Devendra Fadnavis the Chief Minister again for five years, rejected him and the alliance broke up.

After this, Uddhav Thackeray got caught in the maze of Maratha satrap Sharad Pawar in a bid to teach a lesson to the BJP and formed the Maha Vikas Aghadi with the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party and formed the government in the state and himself became the Chief Minister.

Congress-NCP together completely transformed Shiv Sena of Hindu Hriday Samrat Bal Thackeray. Made it a secular political party which seemed to be doing anti-Hindu work. Due to this, the Shiv Sainik raga, which was known to be Hindu throughout life, fell into disrepair. He could not digest Uddhav’s decision.

The condition of Shiv Sena MLAs was worse than even the workers. He was seeing that his government was taking news only of the supporters of Hindutva and the image of Shiv Sena was becoming that of an anti-Hindu party. Voters who voted for it will not accept it.

The MLAs felt that Uddhav’s anti-Hindu policy would end his political career. Therefore, the people’s representatives began to suffocate in the Shiv Sena. They started looking for opportunities and despite the wide support base, when Eknath Shinde, who was sidelined in the party, took the initiative to protest, all the MLAs joined him.

Overall, it can be said that Raag Secular Alapana has cost Uddhav so much that his Shiv Sena is on its way to be free from the clutches of Thackeray family. If there are 37 MLAs in the camp of rebel leader Eknath Shinde, then the rebel group will get recognition. This would mean that the rebel Shiv Sena led by Eknath Shinde will be called the real Shiv Sena and Uddhav’s faction will also lose its traditional election symbol arrow and bow.

Eknath Shinde’s rebellion is a warning bell for political parties which are dominated by a particular family like Congress, Samajwadi Party, Trinamool Congress, Rashtriya Janata Dal and Nationalist Congress Party. While Congress is controlled by Gandhi family, Samajwadi Party is dominated by Mulayam Singh Yadav’s family. Similarly TMC, RJD and NCP are controlled by Mamata Banerjee, Lalu family and Sharad Pawar’s family respectively.

With this rebellion, Shiv Sena has now reached the path of breaking free from the clutches of the Thackeray family. If Uddhav Thackeray compulsively decides to remain in the Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena, he will have no control over the Shiv Sena and even if he forms a party other than Eknath, the Thackeray family will also lose its traditional election symbol arrow and bow. Will give In this way, Shiv Sena will be the first party in the country, which is now coming out of that circle after being subjugated by a particular family from the beginning. This will be the beginning of a new era in the politics of the country.
