Khau Sena: This animated series ahead of BMC polls shows how strained BJP-Shiv Sena ties are

As the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) polls get nearer, ties between BJP and Shiv Sena are worsening with each passing day.

In fact, the ties are so strained that a BJP functionary had written to the State Election Commission demanding ban on publication of Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamana for three days.

But as far as taking digs at political opponents is concerned, BJP just came up with one of the unique and hilarious ways to do so.

Enter Khau Sena.

BJP's latest jibe at Shiv Sena is a series of animated shorts called 'Khau Sena — Tiger Chronicles' on YouTube. Apart from taking inspiration Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's mascot, the series of cartoons also show the misadventures of a tiger and his son, which is a very obvious reference to Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray and his son Aaditya.

The series then takes a jibe at various allegations against and embarrassing incidents for Shiv Sena.

One of those incidents include the time when Aaditya Thackeray's BMW collided with another car, even though the other person took full responsibility for the accident.

The series is probably titled 'Khau Sena' in an allusion to the concept of 'eating money', an evil practice of corruption which can only be stopped by — you guessed it — BJP.

It is darkly comical to see the ties between two parties, which were once very close allies, being reduced to such a state.

Our favourite video, though, has to be the one in which BJP takes a dig at the party for the death of one of the eight Humboldt penguins which had been brought to the Byculla Zoo.
