A day after the Election Commission ruled in favour of the Eknath Shinde faction of the Shiv Sena and said it will be known as Shiv Sena and will also contest elections with the bow and the arrow symbol, former Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray addressed his supporters outside his residence Matoshree. Uddhav vowed to teach the ‘thief’ a lesson in the next election and said, “We should not rest till we teach the thief a lesson in elections. Start preparing for elections immediately.” He also drew a parallel between Saturday’s angry Uddhav to Balasaheb and said Uddhav can’t become Balasaheb just by standing on the car. He added that the ‘thief’ wants the Thackeray name, Balasaheb’s photo but not the Shiv Sena family. Uddhav faction is likely to move the Supreme Court against the election commission’s order.
