The group led by Eknath Shinde has been called the real Shiv Sena by the Election Commission. This has left the group led by Uddhav Thackeray in shock. However, in the internet war, the group led by Uddhav Thackeray seems to have won against the Maharashtra chief minister. Shiv Sena’s website, shivsena.in, has been taken down, and the name of its Twitter account has been changed to ShivSena – Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray. Since the account’s Twitter handle was also changed, it no longer has the “blue tick” that shows it is a verified account.
Even though you can’t get to the Shiv Sena website, the link is still on the Shiv Sena UBT Twitter page.
We don’t yet know if the Shinde faction will go to court to fight this takeover of social media.
Shiv Sena changed its Twitter name to Shiv Sena UBT.
Shiv Sena (UBT), on the other hand, has started getting ready for the upcoming legal battle. A team led by MP Anil Desai is talking to legal experts about the best options. On Monday, a petition will be sent to the Supreme Court that challenges the ECI’s decision. As a quick fix, the Sena (UBT) wants to stop the ECI order by linking it to the petition before the Supreme Court about Shinde and 15 other rebel MLAs being kicked out of office.
The Shiv Sena, which is led by Shinde, has already filed an objection, asking that it be heard before any decision is made about Thackeray’s plea. Kiran Pawaskar, a Shiv Sena secretary, said, “We did this because there is no one-sided decision, and we need to know about the issue before we can hear it.”
