Amid rising political tension, Mumbai Police on Saturday imposed Section 144 in the city.
The Thane District Administration had previously imposed Sec 144 CrPC in the district, which is the stronghold of rebel Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde, banning any kind of political procession till June 30.
Meanwhile, the national executive of the Shiv Sena, a meeting of which was chaired by CM Uddhav Thackeray today afternoon, passed a resolution stating that no one would be allowed to use the name of the party or Balasaheb Thackeray to form a new group.
This came after Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde, who is leading a revolt against CM Uddhav Thackeray, decided to name his faction “Shiv Sena Balasaheb”.
Speaking at the national executive meeting of the Shiv Sena today, CM Uddhav Thackeray said: “Some people are asking me to say something but I’ve already said that they (rebel MLAs) can do whatever they want to and I won’t interfere in their matters. They can take their own decision, but no one should use Balasaheb Thackeray’s name.”
