Manisha Kayande resignation

As per the latest news, the reason for the resignation, which has been doing the rounds is said to be the inaccessibility to the party head, Uddhav Thackeray as cited by Manisha Kayande to reliable sources. She said in a brief to the media that, “The Shiv Sena led by Eknath Shinde is the original Sena which belongs to Balasaheb Thackeray”. She is also said to confirm that she has been quite happy with the way the Eknath Shinde faction has been working for the people of the state since they came to power in June 2022.

Manisha Kayande blames party heads

The defaulting leader of the Shiv Sena (UBT) blamed Uddhav Thackeray and Sanjay Raut mainly for the present situation of the party apart from another party leader Sushma Andhare, although didn’t name them in public. Manisha sternly believes that the Uddhav faction has been propagating the agenda of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and the Congress in Maharashtra, deviating from the party’s core values and vision. “People who talk every morning criticizing others, push the agenda of Congress and NCP, and speak against Hindu gods and goddesses cannot be the face of Sena,” she said.

A few hours before Manisha joined the Eknath Shinde faction, the UBT faction had removed her as the party’s spokesperson for “anti-party” activities but didn’t expel her from the party as such. She had also told the media that none of the party members were in favor of allying with the NCP and the Congress during the 2019 elections.
