Dissenting Sena cadres taunt party leadership to welcome back MNS chief Raj Thackeray

After Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray recently announced that Sena will henceforth contest all future elections on its own strength, his loyal Shivsainiks, especially from North-Eastern suburb of Ghatkopar have raised banners of dissent over appointments of former Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) cadres in key party posts. Anonymous Shivsainiks have put up sarcastic posters in Ghatkopar West titled “Navnirman Shivsena”. In a sarcastic footnote, the sainik added,  “Instead why not welcome honorable Raj Thackeray in the party?”

Sena President Uddhav Thackeray at the recently held partys national executive had announced the  decision that Sena will contest all future elections on its own. The Sena leadership has begun revamping party organisation and new appointments are being made.

However, the appointments of former MNS, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and former supporters of Sena's arch rival Narayan Rane in the partys North-East Vibhag has angered local loyal Shivsainiks. Last weekend two groups of local Shivsainiks clashed with each other outside Shiv Sena Shakha 129 in Ghatkopar West over the new appointments.

Shivsainiks are particularly peeved over the appointment of 65-year-old Shivaji Kadam as Shakha Pramukh. Kadam, a former MNS cadre joined Sena barely a year ago. Loyalists argue that Pradeep Mandavkar has been local Shakha Pramukh for the last six years, but has been suddenly been removed from his post. The loyalist camp is agitated over the appointments to various posts by North-East Vibhag Pramukh Rajendra Raut.

The anonymous Shivsainik states that after careful study of their past political careers, many of them were in different political parties opposed to the Sena, contested against the Sena in past elections and have worked against the Sena.

“This means that there are no dedicated cadres within the party worthy of the posts. Hence those who back-stabbed honorable Raj Thackeray and come to Sena have been given key party posts. Instead of that why not welcome honorable Raj Thackeray into the party?”, remarked the loyalist Shivsainik in the poster.

He further added, “Going through the list of new appointees, loyal Shivsainiks like him have realised that the party does not need dedicated party workers like him, but those who have roamed three to four parties. Then so let us also visit four homes and come back. Yours truly, a loyal Shivsainik of honorable Balasaheb”.
