Shiv Sena: Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s Shiv Sena faction is expected to file a petition with the Supreme Court on Monday, challenging the Election Commission’s decision to give the party name “Shiv Sena” and the symbol “Bow and Arrow” to the rival faction led by CM Eknath Shinde.

The Shinde group has already filed a Caveat application in the Supreme Court regarding the matter. A litigant files a Caveat application to ensure that no adverse order is issued against him or her without being heard.

The Uddhav camp’s current strategy is to request an early hearing before a regular bench. There is currently no word on when the case will be heard.

Chief Justice DY Chandrachud has requested that the Uddhav faction mention the case tomorrow and have it scheduled for an urgent hearing.


The faction led by Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde was given the party name “Shiv Sena” and the symbol “Bow and Arrow” by the Election Commission of India (ECI) on Friday.

Notably, since Shinde (current Maharashtra Chief Minister) revolted against Thackeray last year, both factions of the Shiv Sena (Eknath Shinde and Uddhav Thackeray) have been fighting for the party’s bow and arrow symbol.

While the Shinde faction welcomed the decision to recognise the Shiv Sena as the true Shiv Sena, the Uddhav Thackeray faction announced that they would petition the Supreme Court.

The Election Commission on Friday allotted the party name and poll symbol to the group led by Eknath Shinde, despite the fact that the group has the support of 40 of the 55 MLAs and 13 of the 18 Lok Sabha members.
