Samata Party Claims Torch Symbol, Uddhav Thackeray’s Woes Multiply

Fears Rise as Election Commission Initiates Symbol Allocation Process Amidst MLA Disqualification Shock

January 11, 2024: In a significant turn of events, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray faces another hurdle as the Samata Party lays claim to the iconic Mashal (torch) symbol. Following the MLA disqualification verdict, concerns have deepened over the fate of Thackeray’s political emblem. The Election Commission has commenced the allocation of symbols to registered but unrecognized parties, prompting the Samata Party to assert its right to the Mashal symbol. The party insists that it has met all the conditions necessary for obtaining the emblem. All eyes are now on the looming.

The fallout from the MLA disqualification has sparked a clash of identities within the Maharashtra political landscape. Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, breaking away from the Thackeray legacy, asserts that his group embodies the true heirs of Balasaheb’s Hindutva views. Shinde arrived in Mumbai and directly targeted Uddhav Thackeray, questioning the Chief Minister’s decision to take the AB form from him. Meanwhile, Thackeray group MP Sanjay Rauta has taken aim at MP Srikant Shinde, challenging his identity. As the political tensions escalate, both sides engage in a war of words following the controversial Speaker’s verdict.
