Mumbai: The dispute between two Shiv Sena factions on many issues has not died away. The Eknath Shinde faction has registered a complaint before the Election Commission (EC), claiming to be assigned the bow and arrow symbol. The EC is being urged to make an immediate decision on the symbol issue because by-elections for the Andheri (East) Assembly are scheduled for November 3.

The by-polls in Andheri East are the first opportunity for both Shiv Sena factions to demonstrate their strength on the ground. After deposing the MVA government, the Shinde Group and the BJP took power in Maharashtra in June of this year. The Shinde and Thackeray camps are claiming to be the “real Shiv Sena.”

The Shinde faction has made it clear that it has the awesome support of Sena leaders, deputy leaders, state sampark pramukhs, zilla sampark pramukhs, rajya pramukhs, secretaries, zilla pramukhs, and the party’s elected members in the state legislature and Parliament as well as mayors and presidents of zilla parishads.

The Shinde camp has been quoting the September 27 order of the Supreme Court on the petition for a stay by Uddhav Thackeray’s camp.
