The national executive of the Shiv Sena on Saturday passed a resolution authorizing Maharashtra chief minister and party leader Uddhav Thackeray to take action against rebel MPs led by Eknath Shinde.

The executive also passed a resolution that no other political formation may use the name of Shiv Sena and the name of its founder, the late Bal Thackeray.

“The executive has decided that Shiv Sena belongs to Bal Thackeray and is committed to carrying forward his fierce ideology of Hindutva and Marathi pride. Shiv Sena will never deviate from this path,” the party MP said Sanjay Raut.

“He passed a resolution, giving full powers to take action against those who betrayed the party to Shiv Sena chairman Uddhav Thackeray,” Raut told reporters.

Section 144 imposed on Mumbai

Maharashtra Police imposed Section 144 or curfew in Mumbai on Saturday. The move comes after Shiv Sena workers vandalized the office of an MP belonging to rebel leader Eknath Shinde’s camp.

Earlier today, Article 144 was imposed in Shinde’s stronghold of Thane. Security has also been tightened outside his home in the city.

On Friday, police issued an alert after receiving reports that “Shiv Sainiks were to take to the streets”.
