First speech by Uddhav Thackeray after bow and arrow symbol dropped
After losing the name and the Shiv Sena party’s iconic bow-and-arrow symbol, which his late father Balasaheb Thackeray founded, Uddhav Thackeray recently addressed the first-ever gathering in Ratnagiri district. He denounced the BJP as the political party with the most corrupt members while also criticising the Election Commission.
He criticised the EC for siding with Shinde and said that his father, not the EC’s father, was the one who formed the Shiv Sena.
Devendra Fadnavis, the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra, responded to Uddhav Thackeray’s speech by saying that it had nothing new and was solely filled with rage and desperation.
