Uddhav Thackeray Refutes Speculation Of Shiv Sena And BJP Reunion

Uddhav Thackeray, the Maharashtra chief minister, denied rumours that the Shiv Sena and the BJP may reunite, and criticized the opposition party for its behaviour during the state legislature’s recently finished monsoon session. In recent days, speculation has been prevalent in political circles about a possible reconciliation between the Thackeray-led Sena and the BJP, which split following the 2019 elections.

“Something which didn’t happen when we were together for 30 years, what can happen now,” in response to a question regarding whether the two sides would join hands again, he stated. After the two-day session, the chief minister told the media that the BJP members’ actions were not indicative of a healthy democracy.

Twelve BJP MLAs were suspended from the Assembly for a year on Monday for allegedly misbehaving in the Speaker’s chamber with presiding officer Bhaskar Jadhav. “What was the need for the BJP to create a hue and cry over a resolution asking the Centre to provide census data of 2011 to enable the State Backward Class Commission to prepare empirical data of OBCs….should we say its animosity for OBCs came to the surface?” Thackeray asked.

The conduct of BJP MLAs “made us hang our heads in shame”, he said. “Even if you feel the resolution wouldn’t yield anything, couldn’t you still support it? What was the need to create ruckus. If the Centre is not providing us the data, how do you know there are mistakes in it,” Thackeray said.

“If there were mistakes, why did the Devendra Fadnavis government seek information about it in 2019,” he asked. The commotion on Monday was an attempt to destabilise the Sena-NCP-Congress administration, according to Thackeray, who added that the endeavour failed as it had in the past.

“The BJP blames us for murdering democracy and called the MLAs’ suspension a black chapter, then what are ED and CBI doing, painting the democracy white?” he further said. To a question on the pending election for Assembly Speaker, the chief minister said his government applies COVID-19 rules to itself too. “During a pandemic, the health of people and legislators is important. I underwent a COVID test on Sunday and got the report on Monday morning. (But) What about MLAs from rural areas, how can the 72-hour period for RTPCR test be implemented,” he asked.

He justified the delay in holding the Speaker election and the session’s short duration by saying that in two days “we could do a lot of work which will help people”.
