Zilla Parishad Elections: A poster of Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray with Congress President Sonia Gandhi is doing rounds on the social media websites.
In another major twist in Indian politics, a poster of Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray with Congress President Sonia Gandhi is doing rounds on the social media websites. The poster shows a collaboration for the upcoming Zilla Parishad elections where Shiv Sena has tied up with Congress to contest elections in Raigad district. In the image, Uddhav Thackeray shared space with Sonia Gandhi. The poster also contains an image of Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray and Aditya Thackeray each.
Here is the poster:
However, no official word has come out of either party leaving the people making wild guesses on Twitter and other social media platforms. This image became the talk of the town especially after the recent tiff between Shiv Sena and Bharatiya Janata Party before the civic polls. Recently, Uddhav Thackeray attacked Prime Ministre Narendra Modi-led BJP government by calling it the ‘worst ever regime’ to govern the country.
He said, “The Modi government is the worst we have ever seen. Here the soldiers undertook the surgical strikes while the BJP is taking undue credit for it. Will the Centre also take responsibility for substandard meals given to them? They have to fight the enemy on an empty stomach.”

The Shiv Sena Chief wasn’t happy about Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadvanvis’s remarks on him about over the demonetisation move. Hitting back at the BJP leader, Uddhav said, “Yes. I am definitely affected by the demonetisation because I am not callous like you (Fadnavis). More than 200 people have died owing to the decision. One of them was also a soldier who committed suicide due to the note ban. Now, the time has come to flush out the BJP.”
On the other hand, Congress is trying its best to fight against Modi-wave in Uttar Pradesh by joining hands with Samajwadi Party led by current Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav. The first phase of polls in UP saw a record 64% voter turnaround.
