The Andheri East bypoll, which is anticipated to be declared soon, will be the primary litmus test for the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena because the BJP, with the help of the Shinde faction of the Sena, is predicted to combat the election with complete pressure. Shiv Sena has announced Rutuja Latke as its candidate, whiel BJP is expected to discipline former corporator Murji Patel. The election has been necessitated due to the dying of sitting Shiv Sena MLA Ramesh Latke in May this year.
The Andheri bypoll will be the first election after the Sena split. Since the poll is expected to take place before the civic polls in the metropolis, it assumes importance as it will give a clear experience of the temper most of the humans inside the backdrop of the changed political equations.
“Though the Shinde faction has been claiming to be the actual Sena and has been following Balasaheb Thackeray’s ideology, there may be a simmering sympathy for Thackeray due to the ‘betrayal’ via Shinde. The bypoll is predicted to be a check for both of them. BJP too will get the opportunity to get the experience of the sentiments some of the citizens,” stated a Sena chief soliciting for annonymity.
BJP expects traditional Marathi citizens and supporters of Shiv Sena to face by way of the Shinde faction inside the bypoll. Parag Alvani, BJP vp and Vile Parle MLA, believes that the BJP is in a position of winning the seat. “This would be a check for Sena and Shinde-led Sena and we can get a experience of the sentiments most of the people. In 2009, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) in its first Assembly election had dented the Sena votes signifiantly. We count on that response for Shinde camp from Marathi electorate on this bypoll. Though the very last selection has not been taken, Murji Patel is anticipated to be our candidate. He had polled extensive votes as an independent in the 2019 election and has a very sturdy standing in the constituency. We have a truthful threat of prevailing despite sympathy wave for the Sena candidate,” he stated.
Patel gained the BMC elections from a ward in Andheri in 2017 although he could not whole his term due to his disqualification for a faux caste certificate. He contested the 2019 Assembly polls from Andheri East as an impartial and polled the second highest votes.
