Re: 2019 Strategic and Political Analysis-1

So after giving up Hindutva, what is SS's USP? Why will voter vote for SS in the future. Does SS have a caste base like the Marathas for NCP? Hidutva was never their USP. Their voters are marathis in and around Mumbai. Hindutva was add-on which they can easily shake off without losing core votes. I...

Re: 2019 Strategic and Political Analysis-1

Why would Pawar and Congress not support ShivSena? They are under attack by BJP and their leaders are all looking at jail time, especially the very top brass of congress. By breaking SS away from BJP, more than Maharashtra, they would be taking away a big chunk of the Lok Sabha seats in 2024.
