The Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday asserted that he will never go with those who tried to "finish off" his party, putting paid to speculation about a possible reconciliation with the BJP post the Lok Sabha elections 2024, reported the PTI.


Addressing an event organised in Mumbai on the 58th Foundation Day of the Shiv Sena, Uddhav Thackeray said that the Narendra Modi government, which took office on June 9, will collapse and it will replaced by an INDIA bloc-led dispensation, according to the PTI.



On the BJP's performance in the just held Lok Sabha elections 2024, the former CM maintained the national party was trying to hide its failure by spreading news that the Shiv Sena (UBT) will join the ruling NDA.


"We will never go with those who tried to finish off the Shiv Sena," Uddhav Thackeray declared, responding to speculation that he will realign with the BJP, the news agency reported on Wednesday.

Uddhav Thackeray said no poll should be held for 11 seats of the Legislative Council, where MLAs will be voting, till the Supreme Court rules on disqualification pleas related to some members of the lower house.

Polls for 11 seats of the Legislative Council are slated for July 12.

Uddhav Thackeray accused the BJP of abandoning Hindutva and asked whether the national party's alliance with regional outfits TDP and the JDU was organic.

The Shiv Sena (UBT) president dubbed BJP's Hindutva as "regressive" and described the one professed by his party as "progressive".

Meanwhile, the Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena also marked the party's foundation day on Wednesday.

Eknath Shinde on Wednesday characterised the victory of the Shiv Sena (UBT) in the state in the recent Lok Sabha polls as transient and likened it to a "swelling that will go away in due course", the PTI reported.

Addressing an event organised on the occasion of the 58th Foundation Day of the Shiv Sena, Shinde said his rival Shiv Sena (UBT) won Lok Sabha seats because of the Congress' vote bank, but their electoral success was ephemeral.

The Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena (UBT) won nine Lok Sabha seats in Maharashtra, while the Shiv Sena headed by Shinde emerged victorious in seven constituencies.
