In what seemed as a major hint of splitting ties, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday said that ‘time of final decision has come’ and that people are not happy even after the central government reduced taxes on petrol by Rs 2. “Time of final decision has come. We are here to serve people and will continue doing that,” Uddhav Thackeray was quoted as saying by ANI. Thackeray, speaking in recent changes in GST, said that Council’s amendments can’t be considered as a Diwali gift, adding that several more changes are required. He also lauded UPA government, for standing firm on its decisions. “I’m not an economist to comment on yesterday’s announcements but I must say that the previous govt stood firm on it’s decisions,” he said. The Shiv Sena chief said that petrol prices are still high and inflation is still up.

Recently, addressing party’s Dussehra rally, Thackeray had attacked Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and asked it to refrain from “teaching patriotism”. “Don’t teach us patriotism. The day when we need to be taught patriotism hasn’t come yet,” Thackeray was quoted as saying by PTI.

“An atmosphere was created that those who favour demonetisation are patriots and those who oppose it are traitors,” Thackeray had said referring to Modi government’s decision to withdraw high-value currency notes from circulation last year. However, the Sena also head appealed his partymen to refrain from launching personal attacks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as was seen during a recent Sena protest against inflation, PTI had reported.

      Uddhav’s father was a great freedom fighter who had liberated Maharashtra in 1960 from the Congress.

            Instead of merely talking about withdrawing support to the BJP government in Maharashtra, first thing that Shri Uddhav Thackeray Shiv Sena (SS) chief should do is to declare that SS is walking out of NDA. Then Shri Thackeray should ask all SS ministers in Maharashtra cabinet to submit their resignations to chief minister Shri Fadnavis, Since SS has a Minister in the Central govt. too, that minister too should submit his resignation. Once all these resignations are submitted and accepted, Shri Thackeray becomes a ‘free’ man to start his ‘campaign’ against PM Shri Modi and chief minister Shri Fadnavis and everyone else in BJP. But political analysts feel that SS chief is scared of a vertical split in his party and if SS decides to quit NDA, many SS MLAs may break-away and cross over to BJP. Let us see whether Shri Thackeray has courage to walk out of NDA.

              Not that easy. Sena knows that Rane has agreed to join NDA. The present threat from Sena is not a new one . The old proverb is not wrong - barking dog seldom bites.
