Party leader and cabinet minister Aaditya Thackeray has stated that the route from the Mumbai airport to Vidhan Bhavan, the state legislature complex in Mumbai, passes through Worli as a subliminal message to the Shiv Sena rebels currently camped in Guwahati.
Aaditya Thackeray represents the assembly district in Worli, a Shiv Sena stronghold in Mumbai.
The 30-year-old son of Shiv Sena chief minister and president Uddhav Thackeray declared in a speech to party members on Saturday night that the party had no place for “traitors.”
He said it during the ongoing political turmoil in Maharashtra brought on by the uprising of senior minister Eknath Shinde.
In Assam, a state that is governed by the Bharatiya Janata Party, the majority of the party’s MLAs have sided with Shinde, and they are currently camped out in Guwahati.
According to Shinde and his followers, they are the “true Shiv Sena.”
The breakaway group asserted that it holds a two-thirds majority within the legislative party and would demonstrate its strength there.
