Following Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s demand to ban Shiv Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamna’, party chief Uddhav Thackeray has hit out and today used strong words to share his reaction on the issue. Challenging the ban on the publication, Uddhav stated, “Anyone who will ban Saamna will not be seen next time.” The veiled threat is clear and so are the political implications.
Stating that the Shiv Sena mouthpiece would influence the voters, BJP state spokesperson Shweta Shalini had earlier written to the Election Commission demanding a ban on Saamna.
On 26th January, Uddhav Thackeray announced that the party will not go for an alliance with the BJP in the upcoming civic polls. Ruling out the possibility of a pre-poll pact with BJP, he further alleged that the saffron has hired ‘gundas’ (goons) in the party as they can’t fight against the Shiv Sena ‘sainiks’. Thackeray further asserted that they will win the civic polls easily. He stated that the party has wasted 25 years because of alliance with other parties, in the 50 years of Sena.
