Shiv Sena reaches new level of pettiness, parting shots at EC, calling it a “Mistress” of a political party

As reported, Shiv Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut today, passed a cutting remark calling the Election Commision a ‘Tawaif'(Mistress) of a political party, amid the ongoing squabble over a glitch in the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) during bypolls in four Lok Sabha constituencies.

He slammed the Election Commission for not taking any action even though, he alleged that Shiv Sena had caught BJP workers red-handed distributing money during Palghar bypoll. “People are losing faith in the voting system,” he added.

In Palghar, the bypoll was necessitated following the death of sitting BJP MP Chintaman Wanaga. The caterwauling BJP ally Shiv Sena has fielded the late MP’s son Srinivas in a bid to garner the sympathy vote.

Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray launched a vehement and derogatory attack lashing out at the BJP and the Election Commission ahead of the Palghar bypolls.

Taking the recent attack by the opposition on the EC and BJP government to a whole new level, Thackrey wrote in an editorial named Saamna, which is undoubtedly a mouthpiece of the Sena, that there was no point calling India the world’s largest economy anymore as the current government has been treating democracy as their mistress.

He made a direct allegation, saying that the BJP has tampered with the EVMs and is using it for political gain and went on to say that the Election Commission is not seeing the corruption and is not hearing the complaints.

Thackeray said that the government is trying to stay in power for life, comparing it with Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping, of Russia and China respectively.

The Shiv Sena is one of the oldest ally of the BJP’s, yet the sordid attitude the party resorts to towards its ally is rather reprobating. Recently the Sena chief, in a write up in Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamana, had slammed Yogi Adityanath’s recent visit to Palghar and said he felt like hitting him with his own footwear.

Launching a scathing attack at the Shiv Sena chief, the UP CM said he doesn’t need to learn manners from him. The war of words between Shiv Sena and BJP does not seem to stop here. This high voltage drama will definitely heighten as Uddhav Thackeray claims he is all set for Lok Sabha elections next year.

The Shiv Sena chief’s grouse against the BJP is forever increasing. Earlier too he has targeted PM Modi, showing his displeasure when Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu embarked on an eight-kilometer-long roadshow from the airport to Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad. The two tried their hand at the charkha and bonded over a round of kite flying. On this Thackeray commented that the PM should have hoisted the flag in Kashmir instead of flying kites.

Uddhav Thackeray seems to be in high dudgeon always ready to vent spleen at any given point of time. It seems he has gone through a complete mental breakdown, lashing out at anybody and everybody.

Last year Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray flew off the handle when faced when a barrage of questions was posed to him on the monsoon preparedness of the party-ruled Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai or MCGM, a day after heavy rains virtually clogged the city. Irritated by the media persons he told the reporters to “stop the rains yourself”. Responding to Thackeray’s outburst, BJP city party president, Shelar had said, “Instead of speaking in an arrogant tone, you should humbly apologize to stranded people and rectify your mistakes.”

It seems as if the Shiv Sena chief as made Modi vs All his personal narrative. In his quest to defeat BJP, Shiv Sena is open to joining the grand alliance of opposition parties if a proposal comes his way. Earlier though, Shiv Sena has announced that it will contest 2019 Lok Sabha polls alone.

The power crusade often urges the politicians to take bizarre decisions and form outlandish alliances. The parties and leaders who are polar opposites in ideology and policies often rally together when it suits them. Uddhav Thackrey had last year teamed up with the TMC in a bid to take on the BJP, and called on West Bengal chief minister Mamta Banerjee who has always contested different ideologies. She has been meeting Uddhav Thackrey on several occasions since.

Shiv Sena in its pursuit to emerge as an anti-BJP force goes out of its way to humiliate everyone coming its way. However, it’s yet to be seen whether his claim of contesting 2019 Lok Sabha elections alone would pay him off or make him emerge as an underdog.
