Addressing the first press conference after the Sena Lok Sabha debacle, an assured Uddhav Thackeray voiced of winning back all Marathi votes. Shiv Sena Executive President Uddhav Thackeray underplayed the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena factor that led to the Saffron alliance’s debacle in the just-concluded elections and said his party will win back all the Marathi votes that might have gone elsewhere. He said that the Shiv Sena have not taken Marathi voters for granted and will take care of how to tackle the division of votes. Uddhav Thackeray was addressing the media for the first time after the Shiv Sena debacle in Lok Sabha elections in Mumbai and Thane. The press conference was called to introduce the party’s 11 MPs to the media during the press conference at Sena Bhavan. Uddhav Thackeray added that they were getting feedbacks that the people are repenting for what they had done after the victory of Congress in Mumbai and Thane belt. Further, Uddhav Thackeray asserted that these things will not be repeated in assembly polls, which are due in October. Asked about the possible tie up with the party of his estranged cousin Raj’s MNS, Uddhav Thackeray said that Shiv Chief Bal Thackeray had already stated on this. It may be recalled that two ago in a statement, Sena Supremo had talked about severing all ties with with his nephew Raj. The Sena leader also said his party’s alliance with BJP will continue. Expressing his amazement over Congress winning five of six parliamentary seats in Mumbai after his party had won elections to the MCGM, he said the Shiv Sena would try to find out the lacunaes that might have led to their defeat and will get back the Marathi voters. He said he could not devote enough time for campaigning in Mumbai and pointed that there was no star campaigner for Shiv Sena this time. Beyond any doubt, the biggest test for the Shiv Sena and particularly for Uddhav Thackeray has just begun. Bureau report – NMTV News.
