Mumbai: Aaditya Thackeray, leader of the Uddhav Thackeray faction of the Shiv Sena, said on Friday that those MLAs and MPs who switched sides and joined Eknath Shinde’s camp are gaddars (traitors). Currently, both factions of Shiv Sena have two different names to take part in local elections. Incidentally, both sides claim that they are the real Shiv Sena.

Speaking regarding the future of the Shiv Sena, Aaditya Thackeray clarified that it was not true that the Shiv Sena was in crisis. We are trying to bail out of the crisis. But the worst scenario we faced was that 40 gaddars MLAs and 12 MPs ran away from our party and joined Eknath Shinde’s BJP-led faction, Aaditya Thackeray said.

We haven’t lost heart, we are fighting. It can’t be worse than what we faced. They (the Eknath Shinde-led government) unseated Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress’s Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government. The well-established government collapsed in June of this year. At last, Uddhav Thackeray had to quit as Maharashtra’s Chief Minister shortly after the Supreme Court ruled that he must prove his majority.

Following the revolt of Shinde, Uddhav Thackeray’s Shiv Sena has just 13 MLAs in its party. Shinde-led revolt that played out in three BJP-ruled states — Gujarat, Assam, and Goa. Aditya Thackeray held the portfolios for the Higher Education, Tourism, and Environment ministries in the Uddhav Thackeray Cabinet.

Aaditya Thackeray has been calling the 40 ‘gaddar’ MLAs and said that the number has a significant meaning in Arabian Nights’ story of ‘Ali Baba and 40 thieves’.
