On the occasion of Shri Krishna Janmashtami on Friday, a different political scene was seen in Maharashtra. While Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has participated in many Dahi Handi programs. At the same time, after the rebellion of former Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and his Shiv Sena camp, there was a shortage of MPs. Apart from this, Chief Minister Eknath Shinde’s government has also announced sports insurance for Dahi Handi and health insurance for Govindas.
Statistics show that the BJP had organized 370 Dahi Handi festivals in the city of Mumbai. This is significantly higher than the previous average figure of 150-170. Each poster related to the celebration included photos of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Fadnavis. The most special of these was the Jamboree Maidan event in Worli, where BJP’s Navi Mumbai Chairman Ashish Shelar moderated the programme.
Big changes expected in MP government, BJP formula ready for Rajasthan too!
This is the territory of Uddhav’s son, Aaditya Thackeray. According to the media, the BJP throws Shelar ahead of Aditya. Fadnavis also reached the event and defeated Dahi Handi. In Thane, considered a stronghold of the Shiv Sena, Shinde Camp members organized Dahi Handi on a grand scale. Most Shiv Sena MPs in Mumbai and Thane are now with CM Shinde.
Is the focus on BMC?
Elections can be held in 227 BMC wards after the monsoon. The peculiarity is that the Shiv Sena has controlled the body for more than three decades, but after the rebellion of the party and the entry of the BJP to power, the equations may change. In 2017, the BJP and the Shiv Sena were also together, but the two parties contested the BMC elections separately. On the one hand, Shiv Sena got 84 seats. Meanwhile, the BJP also won 82 seats.
