Shiv Sena faction led by Eknath Shinde adopts the symbol of two swords and a shield

In New Delhi: According to the Election Commission, the Shiv Sena group headed by Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde has adopted the Two swords and shield emblem for the impending by-election in Andheri (East). The name Balasahebanchi ShivSena has already been assigned by the Commission to his organization.
The Commission claimed in its letter that the Dhal Talwar proposed by the Shinde side was not included in the list of free emblems.
It resembles the formerly reserved symbol of the People’s Democratic Movement, Does Talwarein Aur Ek Dhal (Two Swords & Shield), which was decertified as a state party in 2004. Read the information from the Election Commission. In response to your request dated 11.10.2022, the Commission has decided to proclaim Do Talwarein Aur Ek Dhal to be a free symbol and assign it. until the final decision in the Dispute is made.
As the Commission analyses the actual Sena question, the two Sena factions—led by Eknath Shinde and his predecessor Uddhav Thackeray—are given interim titles and insignia.
The party’s election emblem of a bow and arrow as well as the legacy of party founder Balasaheb Thackeray have been claimed by Mr. Shinde’s group. The organization will not vote in the upcoming bye-elections. The ruling coalition will be represented by a BJP candidate. However, the Uddhav Thackeray group has been forbidden from using the bow and arrow insignia, according to the Shinde faction.
The Commission decided to assign new names and symbols as a temporary remedy after putting the bow and arrow emblem on hold.
The Shiv Sena Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray will be the name of the Uddhav Thackeray group, according to the Commission’s announcement from yesterday, and the Mashaal will serve as its party emblem (flaming torch).
The faction of Mr. Thackeray has filed an appeal with the Delhi High Court, arguing that the Commission cannot make such a judgment without a hearing. ECE’s freeze of the symbol is motivated by legal malice. According to Eknath Shinde’s petition, there will be no candidates from his group running in the aforementioned election.
The Sena versus Sena conflict began in June after Mr. Shinde vertically split the party, leading 48 MLAs in an uprising against Uddhav Thackeray, the then-Chief Minister, with the support of the BJP. After the Maha Vikas Aghadi administration disintegrated, Mr. Shinde and the BJP created a new government.
The Shinde group, who claims to be the legitimate successors of Balasaheb Thackeray, the party’s founder, and Uddhav Thackeray’s father, is currently contending for control of the party’s name and election symbol.
The poll body has become involved in the debate over the electoral emblem. According to sources, the Commission would consider the strength of the parliamentarians and party officeholders on either side before making a judgment based on the majority rule.
