Angry at criticism, Eknath Shinde-led government takes cases against Uddhav Thackeray’s Sena UBT leaders

Mumbai: Besieged by the ongoing onslaught of opposition Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray), several of its leaders have been targeted in police cases by the government of Chief Minister Eknath Shinde deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis. Among them are Sena (UBT) MP Arvind Sawant, deputy leader Sushma Andhare and MLA Bhaskar Jadhav, among other leaders, following complaints from Dattaram Gavas, an activist of Shinde’s Balasahebanchi Shiv Sena. Sawant has been charged with ridiculing MSME minister Narayan Rane, the trade union of the Bharatiya Janata party, whom he called “kombdi chor” (chicken thief) during a public rally in Thane this week. Jadhav is smitten with a case for monkey Shinde’s style of reading a prepared speech at his October 5 Dussehra Rally at Bandra Kurla Complex.

Andhare has also been booked for mimicking Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s promises to give employment to two crore youths at a Thane rally.

In a statement on the October 9 meeting, Naupada (Thane) Police Station named other leaders and activists at the local level, such as Anita Birje, Madhukar Deshmukh, Sachin Chavan and Rajan Raje of the Dharmarajya party. under various sections of the Indian Penal Code for inflammatory speech, use of offensive language, attempts to arouse passion and tarnish the image of CM Shinde, etc.

Sena (UBT) leaders have wept over the police crackdown, calling it a “political vendetta” intended to “silence and destroy the opposition”.

Sena senior peasant leader (UBT) Kishore Tiwari said the Shinde-Fadnavis government is “selectively targeting” party leaders who raise their voices against the regime in order to demoralize the party’s grassroots.

dr. Veteran Sena (UBT) trade union leader Raghunath Kuchik said the Shinde-Fadnavis government has “exceeded all limits of political propriety” by targeting political opponents.

An unfazed Andhare said that if speaking the truth is an offence, she was willing to face all the consequences of the police case brought against her, but she would continue to raise her voice against any injustice against the people.

While both Andhar and Jadhav said they had not received any communications from the police, they said everything they said was in the public domain even as the Thane Police continues their investigation.
