Why rebellion for Hindutva but not for OBCs?

Chhagan Bhujbal was the first leader to raise the banner of revolt against the Shiv Sena leadership. That was in 1991-92. He used the OBC issue to break ties with the brahmanical Shiv Sena and joined the Congress. When Bhujbal quit the Shiv Sena, he joined the OBC movement. Why is that in 2022, the rebel Shiv Sena MLAs are talking about Hindutva rather than the OBCs? asks Shrawan Deore

It was decided that a situation would be created that would force the Shiv Sena MLAs to abandon the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) and join the camp of Ajit Pawar and Fadnavis. While Fadnavis brought the MVA government under pressure, using the services of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED), Ajit Pawar began egging on the MLAs to revolt by humiliating them.
