  • Accusing the Modi government of boasting about how Pakistan was straightened out after the surgical strike, the Sena sought to know whether it has really happened. It also observed that troubled borders were not good for the country's well-being.

    The list has other names like Gulabrao Patil, Uday samant, Anil Parab, Abdul Sattar. Two MLA’s who supported Sena in forming the government Bacchu Kadu and Shankarrao Gaddakh were also being given posts. The swearing in also had allies like the Peasants and Workers Party and the SSS upset with not having its MLA’s included as ministers.

    In a veiled attack on the BJP-led central government, the Shiv Sena, in its party mouthpiece 'Saamana', noted that the Thackeray government took the decision of farm loan waiver at a time when the country is "burning" over the issue of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.

    A Saamana editorial took potshots at two senior most Congress leaders in Maharashtra and said that they were similar to, 'old pickles and old grooms'.

    An atmosphere is being created for granting citizenship to refugees, an editorial in party mouthpiece 'Saamana' said, and asked whether the government will open its eyes over the issue of intrusion from Pakistan. The bill, which seeks to provide Indian citizenship to non-Muslim refugees from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, was passed by the parliament.

    The Sena does not need to prove how "staunch Hindu" and "patriotic" the party is, Sanjay Raut said while participating in a debate on the Bill in the Upper House. "We should discuss this Bill based on humanity not on religion. The Sena member also attacked some MPs who said that those opposing the Bill were "traitors" and "speaking the language of Pakistan".

    The bill is scheduled to be tabled in the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday. The Sena, which supported the bill in the Lok Sabha, did a u-turn on Tuesday when its chief Uddhav Thackeray indicated that its support was conditional in the Upper House of Parliament.

    The Shiv Sena on Monday raised concerns over certain aspects of the Citizenship (Amendment) bill but backed the government for its passage in Lok Sabha and even voted in its favour. The bill seeks to provide Indian citizenship to non-Muslim refugees coming from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan . The party is in alliance with the Congress and NCP.

    Ministers, while taking oath, took names of their leaders and others, which was not as per the protocol, Patil told reporters at the legislature complex here. A petition is being filed before Governor B S Koshyari against the "illegal" oath-taking ceremony, he said. The election for Speaker's post will be held on Sunday.

    Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray formally took charge of his office here on Friday afternoon. He took charge shortly after 2 pm, ...

    On way to Mantralaya from the Thackeray family residence Matoshree in suburban Bandra, he stopped at the Hutatma Chowk in south Mumbai and paid tributes to martyrs.

    He however added that the state would have only one Deputy Chief Minister and that would be from the NCP. The Congress had been insistent on the issue of the Speaker's post that it was willing to forego the Deputy Chief Minister being offered to it. The Congress and NCP were both claiming the Speaker’s post with the Sena weighing on the NCP side.
