The Shiv Sena national executive on Saturday passed six resolutions amid the ongoing political crisis of Maharashtra as Sena chief and Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray warned the Eknath Shinde faction against using the name of his father Balasaheb Thackeray. Earlier in the day, rebel MLADeepak Kesarkar announced that the rebel faction would be known as Shiv Sena Balasaheb and they will not merge with any party. The Shiv Sena national executive decided to take action against anyone using the name of Sena or Thackeray. "Uddhav Ji said if they want to seek votes, they must do so in their fathers' names," Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said after the meeting which Uddhav attended in person.

3. The party belongs to Balasaheb Thackeray and nobody is authorised to use his name and form a new group.

4. There will be no compromise on the ideology of a united Maharashtra.

5. The Hindutva ideology of Balasaheb Thackeray will not be compromised.

6. The Shiv Sena will take legal action against those using Balasaheb's name and will also approach the Election Commission.

As Sena readies its action against the rebels, 16 MLAs, including Eknath Shinde, were served disqualification notices by the deputy speaker of the assembly, asking them to file their reply by 5.30pm on Monday.

Parallel to Sena's national executive meeting, the rebel MLAs held a meeting in the Guwahati hotel they are staying in. Deepak Kesarkar said there is a misunderstanding that the rebels have left the party. "We have just separated our faction," he said adding that the rebel faction will go to the court seeking recognition.
