During the rally, the leaders of the Uddhav Thackeray faction not only imitated PM Modi and other dignitaries, but also made fun of the Chief Minister’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-backed Dussehra rally. Uddhav Thackeray’s leaders mocked CM Shinde by saying that all he does is to read ‘Modi-Shah Chalisa’. He also termed the insurgent group led by Shinde as a ‘duplicate Shiv Sena’. Around 2500 people attended the event.

The seven include member of parliament Vinayak Raut and member of assembly Bhaskar Jadhav

Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) leader Chintamani Karkhanis accused the police of targeting their party workers under the pressure of the ruling party. “We do not fear the cases…” He said the Shine faction wants to stop their Mahaprabhodhan Yatra by lodging fake cases against them. The name and symbol of Shiv Sena was frozen by the Election Commission on 8 October. At the same time, the Uddhav faction has been named ‘Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray’ by the Election Commission and the Eknath Shinde faction has been named ‘Balasahebchi Shiv Sena’.

The Election Commission has also allotted new election symbols to both the groups. The Uddhav Thackeray faction has got the ‘flaming torch’ symbol and the Eknath Shind camp has to contest on the ‘sword-shield’ symbol. Shinde became the chief minister with the Bharatiya Janata Party’s support this year after rebelling against his predecessor, Uddhav Thackeray.
