‘Big surprise’ in Maharashtra

Updated Div., July 1, 2022 1:52 AM IST

In the last 24 hours in Maharashtra, the way politics has changed attitude and the end of family politics has started from the country, should be welcomed with an open heart by the normal worker of each political party. In today’s democracy, as in the current era, in almost all states, there are family political parties that believe in their birthright in power, in view of this, the change of power in Maharashtra can become an example. which will continue to inspire the hard-working workers. The founder of Shiv Sena, Mr. The only qualification of former Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, son of Bal Thackeray, was that he was the son of Balasaheb. But he reinforced this tradition and kept his son Aditya Thackeray as a minister in his own cabinet for two and a half years. Democracy means domination of the people. By handing over the command of the head of state minister to Uddhav Thackeray’s party, Shiv Sena, a grassroots worker Eknath Shinde has shown that he has not supported the Shiv Sena faction of Eknath Shinde just for the sake of turning the tide. power, but through him. Power has been handed over to the common man of Maharashtra. But it’s not like there’s no political touch. The BJP has also broken the illusion that, being the largest party (106 deputies) in the assembly, it has its own claim to the post of prime minister. On the contrary, by handing over the post of chief minister to Shinde leader Shiv Sena, Eknath Shinde, who has only 40 deputies, has shown that even if one has to sacrifice personal interests to make policy of principles, one should not go back. Shri Shinde was also a minister in the Uddhav government, but rebelled against the government of Mahavikas Aghadi, an alliance of Shiv Sena and the Nationalist Congress and Congress, because the Uddhav government ruled by compromising the basic principle of Shiv Sena, “Hinduism.” ‘. There is no doubt that Shiv Sena is a great supporter of Hindutva, but he is known for the Maratha values, the foundations of which were laid by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. However, discrepancies were found intermittently when the Shiv Sainiks opposed citizens of other states in the past. But as for Eknath Shinde, he began his rebellion on the subject of the Hindutva and was soon joined by 40 of the 55 total deputies of Shiv Sena. Another thing is that in order to retain these deputies they had to camp first in Surat and then in Guwahati, the capital of Assam. It would have been better than Mr. Uddhav Thackeray would have resigned from his post only after the separation of Eknath Shinde, because if the prime minister lost his credibility within his own party, then what could be the Iqbal status of his government? But Shri Uddhav took all these measures to cling to power, which could have had the slightest reach. Through the vice-president of the Legislative Assembly, he initiated the process to get the members of 16 of the 40 rebel deputies of his party Shiv Sena, who was challenged by the Shinde faction in the Supreme Court. While even earlier he had also communicated the motion of confidence against the vice president, which was rejected by the vice president himself. The way in which the judicial knowledge of the vice-president’s notice was taken to cancel the membership of 16 deputies after the whole matter was in the Supreme Court, also raised the question of whether the vice-president’s action can be justified. . But Uddhav Thackeray’s real problem came when the governor ordered him to prove his majority in the House. On behalf of Thackeray, this direction of the governor was challenged in the Supreme Court. This task in itself was very wasteful because in a parliamentary democracy, any government can only be the government of the majority and the governor is obliged by this law to allow only the government of the majority to remain in power. But the Supreme Court gave the same decision that was constitutional that the ground test cannot be stopped in the House. After all this, Mr. Uddhav Thackeray resigned. But after that it will be said that the strategy adopted by the BJP gives powerful results. The decision of the BJP High Command to have Shri Devendra Fadnavis as the Deputy Prime Minister in Shri Shinde’s government will not only strengthen the alliance but also give the people of Maharashtra confidence that the first government authority is normal but committed. and loyal to the principles, he is only the worker and not the person who shows pride in any family inheritance.

Now the question of the true Shiv Sena will also be raised because Mr. Shinde is still considered a member of Shiv Sena. But before that, the BJP and Shinde Shiv Sena will fill the vacant post of spokesman so that the issue of the alleged suspension of 16 MPs is fully resolved. Maharashtra politics is also a direct test of how many dice can be changed with a single move in politics.
