Shiv Sena Symbol Controversy: Uddhav Thackeray has decided to go to the Supreme Court against the decision of the Election Commission. The Election Commission had on Saturday itself decided to give the Shiv Sena party’s name and symbol Dhanush Baan to the Eknath Shinde faction. Thackeray has called a meeting of party leaders and workers on Sunday following the Election Commission’s decision.
On the other hand, the Shinde faction has also decided to file a protest letter against the petition of the Thackeray faction. Means now the court will not be able to pronounce the verdict without listening to the Shinde group.
Election commission’s decision is bargaining
On the other hand, MP Sanjay Raut targeted the BJP and the Election Commission and said that a transaction of 2 thousand crores has taken place to snatch his name and symbol. He termed this decision of the Election Commission as bargaining. Raut said that the people of Maharashtra do not pay attention to what Amit Shah says. Those who do the work of buying the truth, what are they talking about truth and falsehood.
Crores must have been spent for the election symbol

He said that so far a transaction of Rs 2,000 crore has been done for taking its name and election symbol from Shiv Sena. I stand by this claim. Taking a dig at the BJP, he said that a group of unscrupulous people in the country can spend 50 crores to buy MLAs, 100 crores to buy MPs, 1 crore to buy councilors and 50 lakhs to buy branch heads.
Home Minister Amit Shah resigns
He also targeted Home Minister Amit Shah. He said that Home Minister Amit Shah should step down. Because today Kashmiri Pandits are sitting on dharna in Kashmir. Why were Kashmiri Pandits killed? Did they get protection? The government should answer this. Even today Kashmiri Pandits are not ready to return home. Whose failure is this?
