Shiv Sena declines change of location for Thackeray memorial

New Delhi: Mayor Snehal Ambekar, the first citizen of Mumbai is facing dislodgment from her mayoral house in Shivaji Park to make a place for building Bal Thackeray memorial.

She is expected to file a letter to the Municipal Commissioner for the change of residence, as he is more powerful, under the 127-year-old Municipal Act.

Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, who had earlier disagreed to the construction of the memorial has now given permission for it. Although he did mention that the memorial would be run by a trust and will not exclusively be in control of the Shiv Sena.

Uddhav Thackeray, the successor of Balasaheb, would be the chairperson of the trust,  similar to Sharad Pawar being the president of YB Chavan Prathistan. However, nothing is finalised till the trust is registered with the Charities Commissioner.

The memorial is expected to bring great joy to the ex and present party works, who have had an integral connection with Bal Thakres ideology. Even as Raj Thackeray separated to form the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena, the excitement of the memorial still prevails within the party.

The Chief Minister intends to widen his cabinet by bringing in more leaders from the Sena. This understanding flows from the loss of BJP in Bihar.

Bal Thackeray had established the party in 1966 and the party wants his memorial in Shivaji Park where he was cremated. Thackeray landmarked the place by conducting regular rallies there.

Shivaji Park is a heritage area, and so, the party asked for the Mayor’s Bungalow. Though that too is a heritage site, the Sena didn’t agree to withdraw their request or compromise on the place.

Fadnavis is evolving to be a memorial-friendly minister as he authorized the Shivaji memorial at the Mumbai’s’ sea facing Marine Drive, the Ambedkar memorial, and now going for the Bal Thackeray memorial.

Bal Thackeray’s memorial would stand on Cadell Road, without tampering with the heritage structure.
