Maharashtra Politics: No matter how much a frog swells, it cannot become an elephant. BJP MLA Anil Bonde said this today (June 14, Wednesday) while directly attacking Eknath Shinde. This means one can deduce that, if a leader with 40 MLAs gets the CM's chair, he cannot match Devendra Fadnavis with the support of 105 MLAs. MLA Sanjay Gaikwad, on behalf of the Shinde faction, has given an answer to this by saying that BJP built its position by holding the finger of Shiv Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray, otherwise it would not have been anywhere in Maharashtra today.

That is, it is clear that the advertisement released yesterday in the name of Shiv Sena of Shinde faction and the controversy it generated, did not subside even after the mistake was rectified in the new advertisement. Anil Bonde has also said on behalf of BJP that Maharashtra is not limited to Thane (Shinde's stronghold). Maharashtra is huge. On this, Shinde faction's minister Shambhuraj Desai said that Shinde is not only a leader of Maharashtra but also of the country. It can be understood that the leader behind whom fifty MLAs and thirteen MPs came without caring for back and forth, how big a leader he is. The whole country saw the revolution he did. Shambhuraj Desai has also advised the BJP leaders not to concentrate too much on advertisements and move forward forgetting the controversies. He also tried to do damage control by saying that yesterday's advertisement was issued by a well wisher. It was not an official advertisement of Shiv Sena.

Twist in today's advertisement, today's damage control after yesterday's troll

There is a big difference in the advertisement of Shiv Sena of Shinde faction yesterday and today. In yesterday's advertisement it was told that, 'Modi in the nation and Shinde in Maharashtra'. In yesterday's advertisement, there was a picture of CM Eknath Shinde with PM Narendra Modi. The picture of Devendra Fadnavis was missing. Chilli was rubbed with salt on the wounds in such a way that Shinde was compared to Fadnavis. CM was said to be the choice of 26.1 percent of the public and Fadnavis was said to be the choice of 23.2 percent of the public.

Shinde's Shiv Sena reformed ADs, Fadnavis's photo ADD

In the advertisement of Shinde's Shiv Sena that came out today, instead of 'Modi in the nation, Shinde in Maharashtra', the headline 'Janta Ke Charan Mein Matha, Garje Maharashtra Majha (My)' has been written. Devendra Fadnavis's picture is also in today's advertisement. Not only this, Shinde Fadnavis has come down in the posters today. He has been seen holding hands with Fadnavis.

CM Shinde came down from above, seen with Fadnavis in photo

Today CM Shinde is not seen above with PM Narendra Modi. There is a picture of Amit Shah with PM Modi. And yes, there is a picture of Balasaheb Thackeray and Anand Dighe in today's advertisement. Yesterday, Sanjay Raut of the Thackeray group had raised the question that Eknath Shinde describes his group as the real Shiv Sena of Balasaheb Thackeray, while Balasaheb's picture is missing in his advertisement. The picture of his guru Anand Dighe is also missing. This means that Shinde Sena is not Balasaheb Thackeray's Shiv Sena, but Modi-Shah's 'dead body'.

Fadnavis distanced himself from the tour yesterday, even today his presence with Shinde was not visible

Meanwhile what is Devendra Fadnavis doing? Yesterday, after the cabinet meeting, Fadnavis walked away laughing with folded hands when asked questions on this issue. Kolhapur tour with CM Eknath Shinde was cancelled. It was said on behalf of the Shinde group that the program has been canceled due to Fadnavis' ear problem. Even today Fadnavis has no program with Shinde. However, it has been told from the office of the Deputy Chief Minister that no different meaning should be drawn from it.

Meanwhile, different types of statements have started. BJP State President Chandrashekhar Bawankule has said that the Shinde-Fadnavis comparison was astonishing. Such acts hurt. On the other hand, Shinde faction minister Shambhuraj Desai is trying to do damage control by talking to BJP leaders like Bawankule and Praveen Darekar. On behalf of both the factions, they are suggesting to form a coordination committee, through which senior leaders from both the factions will meet and resolve the differences. BJP MLA Nitesh Rane is saying that who Sanjay Raut has entered into the alliance of BJP and Shinde Sena. Find him out. Shrikant Shinde, MP son of CM Eknath Shinde is in Delhi. Why have you gone? Have you gone to take instructions? The round of discussions has started in the political corridors.
