Recently union home minister Amit Shah visited Mumbai. During this visit, he clarified his stance regarding the Shiv Sena. He reiterated that ‘Uddhav Thackeray’s leftover (Shillak) Sena had betrayed the Bharatiya Janata Party after the 2019 elections. And now they will not be pardoned’. Shah’s statement has immense political implications. The Shiv Sena leadership, in 2019, had betrayed the BJP and joined hands with the Congress-Nationalist Congress Party under the pretext that the BJP did not keep its promise of handing over the chief ministerial position to the Shiv Sena for two-and-a-half years. To prove their statement, the Shiv Sena leadership time and again cited reference that during their so-called meeting at Matoshree, Amit Shah, who was the then BJP president, was also present. Shri. Shah had, on many occasions, publicly clarified that no such assurance was ever given to the Shiv Sena by the BJP leadership.
