Uddhav Thackeray sacks several leaders from Shiv Sena amid battle over party control

Mumbai/IBNS: Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray, who is engaged in a battle with Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde over the control of the party formed by his father, has sacked several key leaders for anti-party activities.

Shinde, who rebelled and succeeded Thackeray in the post of Chief Minister after bringing down his government, has responded by picking up the leaders discarded by the Thackeray camp.

So far, Team Thackeray has sacked former minister Vijay Shivtare, MLA Santosh Bangar, who was removed as district chief of Hingoli, and Naresh Mhaske as zilla pramukh (district chief) for Thane.

Except for the first, both leaders have been reinstated by the Shinde camp, which claims to be the "real Shiv Sena".

Thackeray has also appointed more than 100 new office bearers in Thane, Palghar, Amravati and Yavatmal districts.

The new office-bearers are second-rung leaders elevated to the vacant posts left by rebels.
