The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena is an ultranationalist far-right Indian political party based in the state of Maharashtra and operates on the motto of "Sons of the Soil", with its ideology revolving around chauvinism, xenophobia and moral policing. It was founded on 9 March 2006 in Mumbai by Raj Thackeray after he left the Shiv Sena party due to differences with his paternal cousin Uddhav Thackeray and to his sidelining by the Shiv Sena in major decisions like distribution of election tickets.
