Sanjay Raut, the leader of the Shiv Sena Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray, stated that a “deal of Rs. 2000 crore” has already been made to “buy” the Shiv Sena name and the party’s “bow and arrow” symbol. However, MLA Sada Sarvankar from the Eknath Shinde-led coalition in Maharashtra rejected the assertion and questioned, “Is Sanjay Raut a cashier?” Raut claimed in a tweet that the 2,000 crore figure was an estimate and that it was 100% accurate.Additionally, he told reporters that a functionary with ties to the current administration had given him this knowledge. The Rajya Sabha member claimed that his assertion was supported by evidence, which he would shortly disclose.
Uddhav referred to the electoral commission’s decision to give the Shiv Sena emblem of the bow and arrow to the Eknath Shinde faction as a “murder of democracy” and said he will appeal the judgement to the Supreme Court.
” I have previously stated that the ECI shouldn’t make a conclusion prior to the SC ruling. If the number of MLAs and MPs determines the party’s existence, any capitalist may buy an MLA, MP, or become the CM. During a news conference held here, Uddhav Thackeray stated They should keep in mind that when it came to Indira Gandhi, people chose to vote against her despite the fact that there was no other candidate. He continued, “People may have voted against this government in recent times despite there being no other candidate.”
The Election Commission granted the “bow and arrow” election symbol to the Eknath Shinde-led faction on Friday, recognising it as the legitimate Shiv Sena. In a 78-page order on protracted battle for control of organization, EC allowed Uddhav Thackeray faction to keep the “flaming torch” poll emblem assigned to them until the conclusion of the Assembly bypolls in the state.Sanjay Raut claimed that it would cost 2,000 crores of rupees to “buy” the Shiv Sena name. He claimed that “the EC’s decision is a deal.”
Amit Shah responded to a query about his criticism of previous Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray with a “jibe.” Raut questioned, “What is the current chief minister licking?” the soles of those with opposing ideologies. Shah’s remarks are not valued by Maharashtra. After the EC’s designation of the faction led by Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde as the genuine Shiv Sena and the awarding of it the “bow and arrow” symbol, Shah stated on Saturday that those who decided to “kiss the soles” of those with opposing ideas had discovered which side reality is on.
In addition, Shah reaffirmed that there was no agreement on sharing the chief minister’s position in the lead-up to the 2019 Assembly elections without mentioning Uddhav Thackeray. As the results of the 2019 Assembly elections were announced, the Shiv Sena severed its coalition with the Bharatiya Janata Party, alleging that the latter had broken a promise to share the CM’s position with it.
