Saving Mumbai Following the Maha loss? Uddhav will meet with BMC officials today to assess the effect of the rank split


Uddhav Thackeray, the chief minister of Maharashtra and leader of the Shiv Sena, will meet with the corporators of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Friday in an effort to rally his followers in the face of the continuing political crisis with the Shiv Sena.

All eyes are on this meeting with the corporators despite the fact that Thackeray has been meeting with district presidents to assess the party cadre’s position due to the movement of the majority of MLAs to the Eknath Shinde camp.

The next significant division inside the party will occur among BMC corporators, according to a source, after MLAs and MPs.

Leaders of Sena further assert that there would be an impact on the BMC elections, which will take place in October-November, which might further harm the party.

The Sena has controlled the BMC since 1989, making it the most powerful civic organisation in the nation.

Sena and BJP sources claim that Eknath Shinde has influence in Thane, Kalyan-Dombivli, and Ulhasnagar, although Navi Mumbai has historically been the BJP’s bastion. The BMC is the only company that might still support the Thackeray-led Sena.

According to a Sena leader, the BMC originally had 84 elected corporators but eventually had 99.

With the Sena broken, the BJP has a good chance of winning the mayor’s seat in the polls.

Even the leaders of the Thackeray-led Shiv Sena in Thane Municipal Corporation are adamant that they will be eliminated. There would be a significant impact on Ulhasnagar, Kalyan, Navi Mumbai, and Thane. Thane, Kalyan, and Dombivli will be lost to the BJP, while Navi Mumbai will be lost to us. Already, we are evaluating the damage “According to a Shiv Sena insider, if the party experiences a sharp division, there will be “some” impact in the BMC.

“However, there will only be minor damage in Mumbai. Not the karyakartas, but MLAs, have split. The workers themselves are still there “the commander added.

According to sources, the CM has met with the heads of all the constituencies whose MLAs have defected to join Shinde.

The BMC opposition, however, has a different viewpoint. Senior BJP members who have firsthand knowledge of how the corporation operates predict that corruption, poor performance, and inadequate service provision would bring down Thackeray’s Sena. Even if there hadn’t been an internal rift, this still would have occurred “a senior BJP leader tacked on.

“Due to the Shiv Sena’s poor leadership, its party cadre and leaders would eventually leave the party, if they find a better alternative, “a senior BJP leader remarked.

Even the elected officials of the people are looking for many solutions. What happens if the Shinde side obtains the symbol? Which one will be the actual Balasaheb Thackeray Shiv Sena?

Should that occur, will Shinde launch a new party or combine with the BJP?

If so, what will happen to Shinde supporters who want to maintain their Shiv Sainik status?

According to sources, the corporators’ meeting will resolve the majority of the questions.
