Shiv Sena to remain stuck to Hindutva


Even as the Shiv Sena formed Maharashtra government in alliance with the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday said that Hindutva ideology is indispensable to the Shiv Sena and the party will not leave it.

“I am still with the ideology of ‘Hindutva’ and won’t ever leave it,” Uddhav Thackeray told the Assembly.
However, earlier the Shiv Sena had perhaps for the first time adopted secularism as its instrument of political power. The Maha Vikas Aghadi – technically led by the Shiv Sena – under Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has committed itself to “uphold secular values” and “take a joint view” in consultation with the Congress and the NCP over contentious issues having bearing on India’s “secular fabric”.
