In a vitriolic attack on Shiv Sena rebels, Sanjay Raut, who is leading the firefight on behalf of Uddhav Thackeray, slammed the Eknath Shinde faction for naming the rebel block ‘Shiv Sena Balasaheb’. Bal Thackeray was Uddhav’s father and the iconic Shiv Sena founder. The rebels have been trying to claim the late Sena founder’s legacy by accusing Thackeray-led MVA government of going soft on the party’s Hindutva push.

“Like Uddhav Thackeray said, don’t use Balasaheb’s name, use your father’s name. Those who are camping outside call themselves the devotees of Balasaheb Thackeray. Had they been the devotees of Thackeray, they would not have backstabbed the party,” Raut said. 

Around 40 Shiv Sena MLAs, led by Eknath Shinde, are camping in a hotel in BJP-led Assam. They have demanded that Uddhav Thackeray end the Shiv Sena’s “unnatural” alliance with the Congress and NCP.
