Thackeray Tree Sees Another Flower In Maharashtra Politics: Check Out What Leads Ahead

Amid the continuing political theatre in Maharashtra, which saw Shinde revolting against the one-time chief minister and Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, Amit Thackeray said he is not contesting with anyone.

As Shiv Sena’s Shiv Sanik Aaditya Thackeray is on a Maharashtra excursion to ensure the future of his party Shiv Sena which is working following the revolution by current CM of Maharashtra Eknath Shinde, his uncle and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray’s son Amit Thackeray has been silently proceeding around the Maharastra for the last two months in his “Mahasampark Abhiyan” – a request to rebuild a nearly extinct student branch of his group.

“My request to youthful boys and girls is that they should enter our student branch as we are the only party, which offers a better option in the present political scene,” Amit Thackeray told The Indian Express. Amit was selected as the president of Maharashtra Navnirman Vidyarthi Sena (MNVS) in February 2022, substituting Aditya Shirodkar, who entered the Sena. “Every university in the Maharastra is our mark. We will have a unit in each university and will designate these researchers to solve their problems by themselves,” he said.

Amid the continuing political theatre in Maharashtra, which saw Shinde revolting against former Chief Minister and Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray, Amit Thackeray said he is not contending with anyone. “The current political actions and my Mahasampark Abhiyan are not connected. I began travelling the state much before these items even began,” he said.

In the first portion of his excursion, which started in June, Amit Thackeray saw all 36 assembly constituencies in Mumbai and met college-going scholars along with current MNVS and MNS headquarters bearers. The visit was also associated with the first round of feedback for the forthcoming Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) elections. Around 1,000 new office-bearers of the MNVS were selected post his sessions; of these, 50 per cent of seats were given to girls. “He is not running in these sessions but giving the required time and taking feedback from group office-bearers as well,” said Kirtikumar Shinde, General Secretary, MNS.

Amit Thackeray later substituted Sindhdurg, Ratnagiri, Raigad, and Palghar districts and parts of Thane. The next round will contain north Maharashtra, Marathwada and Vidarbha. The MNS is condemned for not keeping continuity in its actions to construct the party, which has abused its electoral potential. “My willpower will provide continuity in my endeavours, and I am sure that you will notice it in the coming days,” Amit Thackeray expressed.
