Mumbai: Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday said attempts were made to divide the Shiv Sena in the past as well, but the aim of the newcomers is to dismantle the party.

Addressing party workers at his residence Matoshree here, Thackeray said he has full faith in the judiciary.

A fact led by Thackeray had moved the Supreme Court seeking disqualification of the rebel MLAs led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde.

The top court on Wednesday asked the Shinde-led faction to reschedule its submissions on petitions filed by the rival Thackeray group on constitutional issues due to the recent political crisis in Maharashtra.

Thackeray said that earlier an attempt was made to break Shiv Sena but now efforts are being made to destroy the party.

He was clearly referring to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President JP Nadda’s remarks that in times to come, only a party inspired by ideology like BJP will survive, while others (parties) will be ruled by families.

Thackeray had also alleged that the searches conducted by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) at the residence of Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Sunday was part of a “conspiracy” to dismantle the party.

Shiv Sena, founded by Bal Thackeray in 1966, has seen powerful leaders drop out in the past.

However, the party witnessed its worst rebellion in June when 40 of 55 MLA aligned with senior Sena leader Eknath Shinde, leading to the collapse of the Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MA) government.
