New Delhi: The national executive of the Shiv Sena, which met on Saturday, passed a resolution authorising Maharashtra Chief Minister and party chief Uddhav Thackeray to take action against “those who have betrayed the party”. The executive, however, refrained from taking immediate action against rebel leader Eknath Shinde. The executive further passed a resolution that no other political outfit or faction can use the name Shiv Sena and the name of its founder, late Bal Thackeray. This came after the Shinde faction, camping in Guwahati, said it has named itself as ‘Shiv Sena (Balasaheb)’.
