The development comes a day after the poll panel gave the faction its new name: Balasahebanchi Shiv Sena.“They (Thackeray) had sought the torch symbol and temporary name for their party from the EC and had announced the same on social media also and started celebrations. Surprisingly, after three days, they are now alleging foul play which reflects that they have nothing else to fight on except playing the sympathy card and banking on their legacy.

On the other hand they are resorting to forging support which was recently seen in Mumbai. We appeal to them to fight out a fair war based on works done. These crocodile tears won’t help,” said Mhaske. When contacted, Kedar Dighe, district president at Thane Shiv Sena, defended the Thackeray group. “If it was only sympathy then it would not have lasted long but those making allegations must also remember dedication and loyalty is what binds a party and its people together. It seems it has become a norm for them (Shinde faction) to comment and criticize everything. But they must realise that the common man is watching everything,” he said.
