In order to prevent the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena from using the party’s electoral symbol of bow and arrow in the upcoming Andheri East Assembly by-poll, to be held on November 3, the faction led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde has written to the Election Commission of India (ECI), seeking an immediate decision on the party symbol. The ECI had earlier asked both the factions to submit their say and written statements by October 7 so that the hearing in the matter can be started. In a letter on October 4, the Shinde faction requested the ECI to urgently hear its petition and allot the symbol to it before the Andheri East by-election to avoid its misuse.
