Different shades of saffron

With the consecration ceremony of the Ram temple in Ayodhya, the BJP and its ally Shiv Sena are embracing saffron politics, while the NCP is in a tricky situation, not fully embracing Hindutva but not ignoring it either. Meanwhile, the Congress and NCP are clear in their stand, and Uddhav Thackeray's Shiv Sena is using its own version of Hindutva. The question remains which shade of saffron will gain public support. Additionally, Chief Minister Eknath Shinde is trying to build an alliance with the Bahujan Vikas Aghadi for the upcoming elections, and the development of Mumbai Port Trust's idle land is still awaiting approval. Lastly, the disqualification petitions filed by rival NCP factions are being heard by Assembly Speaker Rahul Narwekar, and the Pawar faction is prepared for a possible court battle.
