Mumbai: On the festival of Dussehra, both factions of Shiv Sena organized separate rallies. The faction led by former CM Uddhav Thackeray held a Dussehra rally at Shivaji Park, while the faction led by Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde held a rally at The Bombay Kurla Complex (BKC).
In both rallies, a chair on the dais was kept vacant as a mark of respect to Balasaheb Thackeray.
Addressing the Dussehra rally at Shivaji Park, Uddhav Thackeray lashed out at the other side. Uddhav Thackeray took a dig at Eknath Shinde in gestures and said that Shiv Sainiks will not forgive Kattappa. He said that he had fixed a CM of two and a half years with the BJP. I am saying this by taking oath of Balasaheb Thackeray and my mother.
