KALYAN: The ports and mines minister Dada Bhuse of Shiv Sena's rebel faction on Friday challenged Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray to remove the photo of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and contest the election as the latter is continuosly teasing the Eknath Shinde group for using Bal Thackeray's photo. The Hindu Garv Garjana Sampark Yatra was started by chief minister Eknath Shinde and his supporters across Maharashtra, under which the first rally was organized in Dombivli on Friday evening by Eknath Shinde's son Dr Shrikant Shinde during which minister Bhuse was also present. The rally was attended by a large crowd of Shiv Sainiks. On this occasion, Dada Bhuse in his speech said, "This gathering is a trailer for Dussehra gathering and now we will have to search for a bigger ground for gathering on Dussehra." Bhuse said Uddhav Thackeray is repeatedly asking us to remove Bala Saheb's photo but Bala Saheb was not the father of one family but the father of entire Maharashtra. Therefore, those running the party in the name of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj should remove the picture of Shivaji Maharaj and contest the elections, he said. Bhuse slammed Uddhav saying that he remembers Shivaji Maharaj during election and then forgets him. Talking about the permission denied for Shivaji Park rally, Bhuse said that, "We are Shiv Sainiks who believe in democracy. It's good that it happened. Since the capacity of Shivaji Park is less, not so many Shiv Sainiks can gather there. Therefore, we should look for a bigger ground for a large crowd." During the rally, Shrikant Shinde also targeted Uddhav saying, "Earlier, during the 2.5 years of government, it was being run by someone else and someone else was sitting on the chair". Shrikant also said that looking at the speed of work of Shinde government in last 2.5 months, opposition are worried about what he would do in 2.5 years of his government. He added that during the next 2.5 years, Shinde-led government will be a blockbuster hit like Sholay movie. However, speaking over chair controversy during a rally he said, "Earlier opposition were looking at the chair of Shinde Sahab. Now these people have started seeing my chair too". Shrikant said, "Yesterday (Thursday) I was sitting on the chair of my Thane-based house, before I sat, there was the video conferencing of CM saheb, due to which there was his board behind the chair but I had not seen it. I am a second time MP and once I win by 2.5 lakh margin and I will know protocols about where to sit and where not."
