As the Uddhav and Shinde camps of the Shiv Sena work feverishly for their show of strength on Dussehra, functionaries from both sides have been given targets to mobilise crowds. While the Thackeray group is depending on shakha and zilla pramukhs to get more people, the rival camp is banking on its MLAs and MPs to fill its BKC rally venue. Forty of the 56 Sena MLAs and 12 of 19 MPs are with the group led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde.
