Mumbai (Maharashtra): A day after the Election Commission froze the ‘Bow and Arrow’ symbol of Shiv Sena barring both the rival factions in the party from using it in the upcoming Andheri East Assembly bypolls, the party president and former Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray lambasted the rival Shinde camp saying the “40-headed Ravana froze the bow of Lord Sri Ram”.

In Facebook live, Thackeray said, “I did not expect this decision from the Election Commission. I believe in the judiciary. We will get justice. The 40-headed Ravana froze the bow of Lord Sri Ram. I am sad but angry because you stabbed your mother in the chest. Do not use Balasaheb’s name if you have guts.”

“Who is Uddhav Thackeray? People know me because my name is Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray,” said the Shiv Sena chief.

He said Shiv Sena was formed in the interests of Maharashtra for the welfare of the Marathi people.

Sharing the story of the formation of Shiv Sena, Thackeray said, “We had a one bhk flat in Shivaji Park. My grandfather asked Balasaheb will he form an organization as so many people were coming with their problems. Balasaheb said that the idea is there. Balasaheb was told by Prabodhankar to name the organisation Shiv Sena. This is how Shiv Sena started.”

Thackeray said BJP is using the Shinde group in its own interest and will throw them away when its interest is fulfilled.

“More than these people (Shinde group), the power behind them must have been happier. What did you get by breaking the unity of Shiv Sena? What is your relation with the name Shiv Sena? The Shinde faction also does not understand how BJP is using them. When your use is over, you will also be thrown away like an empty bottle of liquor.” he said.

He said the Election Commission froze the election symbol of Shiv Sena on Saturday.
“After the Election Commission ordered yesterday, we gave three symbols -Trishul, Rising Sun and Mashaal. We have also given three names Shiv Sena Balasaheb Thackeray, Shivsena Balasaheb Prabodhankar Thackeray, Shiv Sena Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray,” he added.

The Uddhav Thackeray camp of Shiv Sena submitted a list of three names and symbols for the upcoming Andheri East Assembly constituency bypolls to the Election Commission.

Amid a row over Shiv Sena’s ‘Bow and Arrow’ symbol claim, the Election Commission (EC) on Saturday froze the symbol barring both the rival camps in the party from using it in the upcoming Assembly bypoll slated for November 3.

Following this, the Thackeray faction on Sunday submitted the options of ‘Trishul’, ‘Rising Sun’ and ‘Torch’ as symbols for the party to the Election Commission. Further, the Thackeray camp suggested three names — Shiv Sena (Balasaheb Thackeray), Shiv Sena (Prabodhankar Thackeray) and Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) for the upcoming bye-elections.

“Our party’s name is Shiv Sena, if ECI gives any of the names related to Shiv Sena including ‘Shiv Sena (Balasaheb Thackeray)’, ‘Shiv Sena (Prabodhankar Thackeray)’ or ‘Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray)’, that would be acceptable to us,” Shiv Sena (Uddhav faction) MP Arvind Sawant told media persons.
