Compared to the Shinde group, Shiv Sena’s performance was poor. Shiv Sena is in a state of confusion due to various reasons like split in the party, hanging sword regarding the election symbol, confusion over the Dussehra gathering. If the mess is not brought under control in time, the party may have to pay a heavy price.
The results of the Gram Panchayat elections in the state have been declared. In the result, Bharatiya Janata Party and Nationalist Congress Party have the upper hand. Of course, this result is not the opinion of the state. It can be called the general trend of 16 districts of the state. There was a recent change of power in the state. When the Mahavikas Aghadi government collapsed, the Shinde faction of BJP and Shiv Sena formed the government. Since these elections are being held after that incident, everyone’s attention is on it. All upcoming elections are important for BJP and Shiv Sena’s Shinde faction. That is why there is a fight between the rulers to explain how the results of the Gram Panchayat elections came in their favor. BJP claims that it has won the first position. However, it should be noted first that these elections are not held on party symbols. Chief Minister Eknath Shinde expressed his reaction that voters voted for victory as it is a government in the minds of the people. The next strategic direction of BJP and Shiv Sena’s Shinde group should be known from this! It seems that these two elements in the government have made a plan that the Shiv Sena will not be allowed to raise its head under any circumstances.
State of confusion in Shiv Sena
There were elections for a total of 608 gram panchayats in 51 talukas. Out of them 51 Gram Panchayats were elected unopposed. Voting was held for the rest of the Gram Panchayats. According to the statistics, the BJP has won 188 and the Shinde group has won 41 Gram Panchayats. BJP has proved its undisputed supremacy in North Maharashtra. The party won more than a hundred Gram Panchayat seats in four districts namely Nashik, Jalgaon, Dhule and Nandurbar. NCP has shown its strength under BJP. NCP hoisted the flag on 136 Gram Panchayats. Shiv Sena was able to dominate 37 Gram Panchayats. Compared to the Shinde group, Shiv Sena’s performance was poor. Shiv Sena is in a state of confusion due to various reasons like split in the party, hanging sword regarding the election symbol, confusion over the Dussehra gathering. If the mess is not brought under control in time, the party may have to pay a heavy price. During the Maha Vikas Aghadi government, Shiv Sena held the post of Chief Minister, but the NCP held influential positions. It was also alleged that NCP is creating a challenge to the existence of Shiv Sena in rural areas. Even earlier, Congress was not willing to contest the combined elections as Mahavikas Aghadi. In that case, the elections of Mumbai Municipal Corporation and other Municipal Corporations
Will Shiv Sena and NCP face it together? This question will remain important. BJP is looking for an opportunity to defeat NCP along with Shiv Sena. BJP has not forgotten that Maha Vikas Aghadi was formed on the initiative of Sharad Pawar. Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s planned visit to Baramati, Pawar’s stronghold, is indicative of BJP’s next target! Adding new charges in the letter case is also a part of it! Along with the challenge created by the BJP, now the challenge of the Shinde group is before the Shiv Sena. Now not only the attention of the state, but the country has turned towards the Mumbai Municipal Corporation elections. It is obvious that the Shiv Sena will be surrounded by using all the weapons like Sama, Daam, Danda, Bheda. Since it is clear that the Dussehra gathering will help the Shiv Sena in creating an atmosphere for the elections in Mumbai, all efforts are being made to disrupt it. The manner in which Shiv Sena will resist when Shivaji Park is rejected for the meeting will be important in terms of municipal elections. If Shiv Sena withdraws regarding the meeting venue, its negative message will go to the Marathi voters in Mumbai.
