“If Our Faction Isn’t Recognised…”: Sena Rebel Deepak Kesarkar

Rebel Shiv Sena MLAs are staying at a hotel in Assam’s Guwahati


The battle for control of the Shiv Sena has come down to who will carry forward the legacy of Bal Thackeray, the party’s founder and the father of Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.

Sena MLA Eknath Shinde, who the Mr Thackeray faction has pointed out as the ringleader of a group of nearly 40 rebel MLAs holed up at a hotel in faraway BJP-ruled Assam, has named MLA Deepak Kesarkar as the spokesperson of his new faction, which they have christened “Shiv Sena Balasaheb”, to mean the “ideal Shiv Sena as envisaged by Bal Thackeray”.
