Uddhav calls estranged cousin Raj Thackeray

Mumbai, Sept 26 (IBNS): After breaking ties with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray has called his estranged cousin and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray to enquire about his ill health, media reports said.

The call has led to several speculations ahead of the Maharashtra polls especially amid a politically turmoil situation in the state.

A day after the split with BJP, Sena has dubbed the saffron party as “enemy”.

In the party mouthpiece Saamna, Shiv Sena termed its long-time coalition partner as “enemy”.

“Our other (mahayuti) alliance parties wanted the Sena-BJP combine to continue. More than that, it was what the 11 crore people of Maharashtra wanted. Those who trampled these sentiments are enemies of Maharashtra,” it wrote. 

Sena also said that “This is an insult to the 105 Marathi martyrs of the Samyukta Maharashtra movement.”

The grand alliance which blossomed in 1989 during the time of former Prime Minister and veteran BJP leader Atal Bihari Vajpayee and deceased Shiv Sena supremo Balasaheb Thackeray ended on Thursday.
