Mumbai, India – Former Maharashtra Chief Minister, Uddhav Thackeray, announced on Monday that his party, Shiv Sena, will be forming an alliance with Prakash Ambedkar’s party, Vanchit Bahujan Aaghadi (VBA) ahead of the upcoming Mumbai civic polls. The alliance, which is being formed with the idea of “Country First” and in an effort to keep democracy alive, is expected to make a big impact in the upcoming polls.
“Thackeray and Ambedkar have a history,” said Uddhav Thackeray during the press conference. “We have come together with the idea of ‘Country First’ and in a bid to keep democracy alive,” he added.
This alliance is seen as a significant move as VBA represents the marginalized sections of society, and Shiv Sena is known for its Marathi identity politics. It is expected to give a tough fight to the ruling party, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and other political parties in the polls.
The Mumbai civic polls are considered to be very important as the city is the financial capital of India and also considered as the political capital of Maharashtra. The date of the polls has not been announced yet by the Election Commission of India.
This move is seen as a political strategy by Shiv Sena to strengthen its position in the state and also to counter the ruling party. It will be interesting to see how this alliance performs in the upcoming polls and how it will impact the political scenario in Maharashtra.
