Maharashtra Politics: After a big break in Shiv Sena in Maharashtra, Uddhav Thackeray, who is trying to strengthen himself once again, has taken the first step in this direction. In this episode, Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray on Friday announced the party's alliance with the Maratha organization Sambhaji Brigade. This comes at a time when the Uddhav Thackeray-led party is grappling with the after-effects of Eknath Shinde's rebellion and coming to power in Maharashtra.

Alliance formed to preserve regional pride: Thackeray

Along with announcing the alliance of Shiv Sena with Sambhaji Brigade, former Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray said that the alliance with Maratha organization is ideological and it has been done to uphold the Constitution and regional pride. Taking a jibe at his former alliance partner BJP, he said that some people who think that democracy means destroying regional parties and regional identity, they are behaving in an uncontrolled manner. Thackeray criticized the BJP for not following the ideology of the RSS and said that the Sambhaji Brigade consists of people fighting for the ideology.

Said this thing about Shinde faction

Regarding the ongoing legal battle between the rebel Shiv Sena MLAs led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde in the Supreme Court, Uddhav Thackeray said that the results will decide whether democracy will remain in the country or autocracy. At the same time, former Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray also denied the allegation that he had called Chief Minister Eknath Shinde as contract CM.

Uddhav Thackeray found the answer to Maratha's card?

Political experts say that Maratha voters with secular and rural background are with Sharad Pawar. Shivsena's Hindutva Maratha voter is also likely to go with CM Shinde. In such a situation, one of the three forces of Shiv Sena, Hindutva, Marathi and Maratha, took Shinde, Hindutva voters took BJP and if Marathi voters cut Raj Thackeray, then where does Shiv Sena's social base remain? Uddhav Thackeray has tied up with Sambhaji Brigade, another party identified with Maratha pride. Even though the Sambhaji Brigade is not a strong political force. But, there is definitely an aggressive social force.

BJP gave a big blow to Shiv Sena?

Uddhav Thackeray, while explaining the reason for the alliance of Shiv Sena with Sambhaji Brigade, said that BJP has threatened regional identity and democracy, unity of smaller parties is the need of the hour to deal with it. However, this story is not so simple. Actually, BJP has not only given a big blow to Shiv Sena by making Eknath Shinde as CM, but has also played a big game with Sharad Pawar's NCP. Sharad Pawar has a lot of penetration among the voters of Maratha caste. BJP has not only broken Shiv Sena by giving Maratha CM, but has also dented the vote base of NCP.
