Gautam Sahukar | HENB | Mumbai | July 1, 2022:: Eknath Shinde took oath as the Maharashtra CM at 7.30 pm on June 30 while Fadnavis took oath as the deputy CM. This was only wanted by Shiv Sena two and half years back. Then BJP betrayed their long standing partner for their earnest love for the chair of power as exceeded all norms by Devendra Fadnavis and his mentor Amit Shah.
At last, worst for all these Shiv Sena has been divided. It means BJP divided a Hindutva force.
Pundits in BJP aren’t ready to realise it. Otherwise, Devendra Fadnavish would be the CM Maharashtra by now after Uddav’s two and half yrs term, if agreed then.
Now, no other way than the self satiation of Maharashtra BJP but to draw some cartoons to narrate their imagery of victory even after getting a consolation prize of Deputy Chief Minister post.
BJP now expects a silent move to topple down New Maha CM Eknath Shinde. But, Eknath is other material. He is always cautious about the backstabbing of BJP, if made again further.
However, Victory goes to Hindutva and Shiv Sena. Not to BJP as it gets second position of Dy CM.
Call it a surprise or a masterstroke, the BJP, with its decision to elevate rebel Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde — and not Devendra Fadnavis — as chief minister, has changed the optics game in Maharashtra.
With its subtle support to the Shinde camp — whether in Mumbai where the saffron party said it would “wait and watch” or Guwahati where the rebel MLAs were holed up as the struggle for the chief minister’s crown continued — the BJP has made it clear that the reason for bringing about this coup was not the greed for power, though ridiculous.
This became especially crucial in the context of Fadnavis’ old statement “Mi Punha Yein” (I will come back again) doing the rounds on social media. The 2019 statement harks back to the time when Fadnavis was forced to make an unceremonious exit engineered by Ajit Pawar which saw his government last for a mere 80 hours before Uddhav Thackeray took over as chief minister.
With Shinde’s elevation, the narrative BJP will play up is that it sacrificed power for ‘Hindutva’. Delinking Sena from the Thackerays, the saffron party will project that an ordinary Shiv Sainik became the chief minister, fulfilling the dream of Balasaheb Thackeray which even his son could not guarantee. The party, thus, shall present itself as the “true inheritor” of Sena’s Hindutva ideology. The move has also made it difficult for Uddhav Thackeray to bring his clan together, given that the outgoing chief minister faced a revolt “from his own”.
The stunning twist to the Maharashtra saga will now see another element, with Fadnavis accepting the BJP’s “directive” to join the government after initially denying the post. This comes after BJP chief JP Nadda “personally requested” Fadnavis to be the deputy chief minister in the Shinde Sarkar.
BJP National President Nadda did not want to repeat the role of his predecessor Amit Shah to be obstinate enough to obtain the CM post for Devendra Fadnavis. That would surely lose their position to handle the power of financial capital of India and the state in which it is situated.
Up to this round from Surat to Guwahati now the stage lights are on at Mumbai Chowpatti. Under the blessings of ‘Hindu Hriday Samrat’ Balasaheb Thackeray the Shiv Sena has been able to recover itself from the grip of anti-Hindutva political forces like Congress, NCP, AIMIM etc. Fulfilling Balasaheb’s dream to run the state with Hindutva power of politics, the situation elevated Shinde as the real face of Hindutva politics. Eventually, victory goes to Hindutva and Shiv Sena. Not to the BJP anyway. BJP must repair its image for alliance politics in a good sense. Shark sense is not for politics of alliance. BJP must reject its name sake Hindutva in politics to opt for a real Hindu stand for genuine Hindutva Politics.
Upcoming election in Mumbai is very crucial and Hindutva force must not be divided at any cost. If BJP, MNS and Shiv Sena stay together as natural ally no power in Maharashtra can defeat the Hindutva Force anyway.
