'Uddhav Thackeray should be credited for the unrestricted Ganeshotsav', claims Shiv Sena in mouthpiece Saamana

The Shiv Sena on Sunday claimed that party chief Uddhav Thackeray was credited for making the ongoing Ganesh festival ban-free in Maharashtra. An article in Shiv Sena's mouthpiece 'Saamana' said that Thackeray fought the corona pandemic for two years with strict restrictions and created awareness among people about safety protocols. The article published in Saamana said that the then Chief Minister did the work of creating awareness among the people about the security protocols. The 'Rokhthok' column published in Shiv Sena's mouthpiece titled Kadaknath Mumbaikar said that the credit for ban-free Ganeshotsav should go to Uddhav Thackeray.

Attack on BJP in Saamana
It has been written in Saamana that during the epidemic there had come a time that festivals could not be celebrated but this did not stop people from worshiping Lord Ganesha. The article said that Shiv Sena carried forward the tradition of Lokmanya Tilak of celebrating this festival in public. A competition is being held to break the monopoly of Shiv Sena. If you (opponent) want to end the Marathi monopoly in Mumbai, take control of Ganpati mandals or buy them.


Maharashtra is the real land of Hindutva: Shiv Sena
 Saamana said that the tradition of celebrating Ganeshotsav in public started in Maharashtra and today efforts are being made to destroy the importance of the state. It was said in Saamana that Maharashtra is the real land of Hindutva. Veer Savarkar, Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray and the first Sarsanghchalak of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh were born here. The article also criticized yoga guru Ramdev's statement in which he claimed that Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde was a Hindutva hero and was carrying forward the legacy of Balasaheb Thackeray.

Maharashtra government withdraws list of 12 nominations
The Eknath Shinde-led Maharashtra government has withdrawn the recommendation of the then Maha Vikas Aghadi for the nomination of 12 names as MLCs under the governor's quota. The previous Uddhav Thackeray-led government had recommended 12 names for nomination as MLCs two years ago, but the file was not approved by Governor BS Koshyari. People from the field of arts, literature, social work, etc. are eligible for enrollment as MLCs.
