Amidst the ongoing political battle in Maharashtra, Raj Thackeray posted a tweet to support his cousin Uddhav Thackeray
Raj Thackeray, the most well-known rebel for the Shiv Sena, posted a tweet today that could be interpreted as a dig at his cousin Uddhav Thackeray, the party leader who was forced to resign as Maharashtra’s chief minister last night due to a mutiny.
Raj Thackery is trying to console his cousin in such a situation. And so, he made a post on Twitter.

As his cousin left the party in response to an emerging political battle between Raj Thackeray and Uddhav Thackeray, Balasaheb Thackeray was the target of a mutiny led by Raj Thackeray himself in 2005. Although comparisons between that uprising and the one imposed by Eknath Shinde have frequently been made, the damage done by this one to Sena as the party in control was substantially larger.
Uddhav Thackeray resigned from his position on June 29, Wednesday as a result of a week-long scenario that occurred in Maharashtra, Gujarat, and Assam, as well as the Supreme Court’s refusal to delay the floor test that Governor BS Koshyari had planned for Thursday.
Raj Thackeray’s involvement to the “real Sena” discussion by instigating a controversy over the Hanuman Chalisa-loudspeaker row grows significant when Maharashtra BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis and Eknath Shinde finalise the seat-sharing and the portfolio specifics. After Raj Thackeray vowed to have mosques and other places of worship free of loudspeakers, the situation erupted into a significant scandal that spread well beyond Maharashtra.
