Maharashtra Assembly polls: Should Shiv Sena, MNS join hands?

Mumbai, July 16: Maharashtra's main political party Shiv Sena is on the verge of decline and is not yet ready to fulfil the dream of late Bal Thackeray, said a poll survey conducted by OneIndia.

According to the poll survey, if Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thacekray doesn't keep aside his political differences with his estranged cousin and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) Chief Raj Thackeray before the upcoming assembly polls, then his ambition of ruling Maharshtra will never be able to see light of the day, with BJP, as its alliance.

From last 25 years, Shiv Sena is a close ally of the BJP and has been trying to maintain a stronghold in the Maratha land. But since many past years, Maharashtra has become a pocket-borough of the Congress.

It's a well known fact that during Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thacekray's public rallies, crowds appear in lakhs to listen him, but then why such a massive support could never turn into votes for the party?

The reason behind huge public gathering is said to be 'fear' of Shiv Sena among the people of Maharashtra and not the political support.

According to a poll survey conducted by OneIndia, it was revealed that the majority of the people of Maharashtra want Shiv Sena and MNS to join hands together.

Survey figures concluded that 75% of the Mahrashtra voters want to see Shiv Sena and MNS together while 25% are fine with their different parties.

If both Shiv Sena and MNS forge a pre-poll alliance, then people will be emotionally inclined towards the Thackeray clan, that will be an added advantage for both parties in the Maharashtra state assembly.

The internal family differences and the arrogant attitude of the Shiv Sena and MNS have paid them costly in the previous assembly elections, but if they want to rule and serve the people of Maharshtra, then, they must keep aside their egos and make an attempt to relate themselves with the common people.

Recently, Uddhav Thackeray had told mediapersons that "those who have deserted the party, won't be taken back."

In June, MNS chief Raj Thackeray had announced that he would be the party's CM candidate and would contest the assembly elections, which will take place in October, following which Shiv Sena had also declared Uddhav Thackeray as the party's nominee for Maharashtra chief minister's post.

Meanwhile, Aditya Thackeray, the son of Uddhav and party's Yuva Sena chief has launched 'Mission 150', an initiative to activate the youth, students and other affiliated wings of the party to do the ground work for the upcoming assembly elections in the state.

Last month, while addressing a "jallosh" (victory celebration) rally of party workers, Uddhav had promised to turn Mumbai into a "global city" that would help streamline Mumbai's infrastructure projects.
