Setting common aims, from the BJP to the BMC elections, is what motivated Kejriwal’s unexpected attempt to meet Uddhav

Arvind Kejriwal, the leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the chief of Delhi, met Uddhav Thackeray last Friday at his home in Mumbai’s Matoshree, which caused a stir in Maharashtra politics. Many in the state political community were shocked by Kejriwal’s attendance at the meeting with his Punjabi counterpart and AAP colleague Bhagwant Mann.

Days after the Election Commission (EC) dealt him a blow by designating the Shiv Sena faction led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde as the “genuine Sena” and granting the latter the party’s name and “bow and arrow” symbol, Kejriwal met Uddhav.

According to Sena (UBT) officials, Kejriwal’s trip to Matoshree was an act of goodwill. By offering spiritual support to Uddhav Thackeray, the AAP leader was symbolically protesting the widespread abuse of federal agencies to subdue regional forces across the nation to Delhi Durbar (the BJP dispensation) from Maharashtra.

“Don’t forget Kejriwal is a bright intellect and no-nonsense politician,” a top Maharashtra leader said. Every choice and action he makes has a clear goal and purpose behind it.

Manish Sisodia, Kejriwal’s deputy, was detained by the CBI in the Delhi Excise Policy case only two days after his meeting with Thackeray. He is still being held in the agency’s custody.

Evidently, Kejriwal’s decision to travel all the way to Mumbai to meet with Uddhav was an act of solidarity as the two well-known Opposition figures teamed up to intensify their conflict with their shared enemy, the BJP. The fact that Kejriwal and Uddhav were previously unknown to have any close relationships is another issue. Nonetheless, their encounter has sparked discussions in state political circles about a potential coalition between the two parties for the crucial Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) elections that will take place soon.

Officially, the AAP has insisted that it will participate in the BMC elections from each of the 227 wards. When asked about the likelihood of their partnership during the press conference Kejriwal, Uddhav, and Mann had after their meeting, the AAP leader responded, “At this moment, we talked unemployment and other national issues. We’ll find out once the elections are held.

The AAP has set itself up to run for office in the BMC independently by raising concerns about alleged corruption and bad governance in the BMC. But, given the present political realignment, in which the majority of the opposition parties have banded together to oppose the BJP, Kejriwal might possibly step in to support the beleaguered Uddhav in his difficult battle against the BMC.
