After being slammed by Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena, the Shinde camp on Saturday clarified that CM Eknath Shinde is not planning to build a new Shiv Sena Bhavan at Dadar. Taking to Twitter, a newly sworn-in cabinet minister from the Shinde camp, Uday Samant wrote, ''The misconception is being spread that Eknath Shinde is planning to build a new Sena Bhavan in Dadar. We are trying to have a central office so that the Chief Minister can meet the common people. We still have respect for the Shiv Sena Bhavan in Dadar."

On Friday, Shinde camp legislator Sada Sarvankwar announced that their new centre of operations will be called Prati Shiv Sena Bhavan. He also announced their plan to set up shakhas across Mumbai. Sources said this is a part of their plan to completely decimate Uddhav Thackeray and his faction.

Sarvankwar said, “Prati Shiv Sena Bhavan is required, considering the response, the CM is getting across Mumbai and the rest of Maharashtra. This will be the headquarters from where he will operate.”

The three-storey Shiv Sena Bhavan, which is located near Shivaji Park in Dadar, where the party was formed in 1966, was built in the early 1970s. Apart from housing the party headquarters, it also had offices of Sena-affiliated organisations but was damaged after a bomb blast at the nearby petrol pump in March 1993.

A five-storey Sena Bhavan with a corporate look was inaugurated by late Bal Thackeray on July 27, 2006, which was also the 46th birthday of his son Uddhav.
