CM Thackeray Asks Shiv Sena District Chiefs to Spread Awareness About the Government’s Achievements

As the Maha Vikas Aghadi government approaches its first anniversary in around a month from now, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray held a meeting with the state’s Shiv Sena district presidents via video conferencing. 

The CM reportedly asked the party’s district chiefs to strengthen their base by registering new members to Shiv Sena, while also educating the people about the decisions taken by the MVA government for the benefit of the people in the state.

Thackeray reportedly asked the district heads to enrol at least 30,000 new members to Shiv Sena for each of the 288 assembly seats. Further, Shiv Sena’s district chiefs were also asked to tell their constituents about the programs and initiatives launched by the government, particularly with regard to COVID-19 as well as the farmer loan waiver. 

“We will inform people in our districts of the work done by the government. There will be a publicity exercise around the first anniversary; we will put up hoardings, distribute flyers, etc,” a Shiv Sena functionary said.

Meanwhile, NCP Chief Sharad Pawar didn’t seem too flustered by these developments. “Everyone has the right to strengthen their own party. I have been hearing the statement on waving Shiv Sena’s saffron flag on its own since last 30 years. There is no need to draw any other conclusion,” Pawar said in Nashik.

However, a Shiv Sena district chief from Western Maharashtra said that enrolling new members is going to be challenging during the pandemic. “Currently, we cannot have enrolment drives in the traditional format with a pandal, etc, due to Covid-19. However, we will start a door-to-door campaign keeping Covid-19 precautions or distribute forms in a targeted manner. We are looking at 6,000-7,000 families to register in every constituency,” he said.
