Bal Thackeray has a long history and legacy in Maharashtra politics. Though his family never ventured into electoral politics he controlled state politics. He had a grip on state politics that the government had to take his permission to host an India-Pakistan cricket match in Maharashtra.

His Shiv Sena party is a strong Hindutva party and never missed an opportunity to bat for Hindu rights. Shiv Sena is the first party to demand reservation for Kashmiri Pandits. Reacting to Bal Thackeray's demand the Maharashtra government gave reservations to the Pandits.

When the Babri Masjid demolition happened Shiv Sena took the responsibility for it. The party backed the decision saying that the mistake should be corrected and that's why the masjid was brought down. The whole of Maharashtra came to a standstill when he passed away.

Bal Thackeray is also called Hinduhridaysamrat. Today marks his birth anniversary and January 23rd is his 97 th birth anniversary. On the occasion, a new alliance came to light that took everyone by a big surprise.

Uddhav Thackeray's wing of Shiv Sena announced an alliance with Prakash Ambedkar, the grandson of BR Ambedkar. They both held a press meeting and broke the news. The alliance has the potential to change the political picture in Maharashtra.

Shiv Sena has been holding a good hold on the civic body BMC. As the party lost the power to BJP, it wants to send a strong message that it is still strong in the state by winning the civic body polls. Ahead of the elections, Shiv Sena announced an alliance with Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi.
