By the time Shivaji Maharaj was coronated in 1674, SambhajiRaje had been trained in strategies of war and battlefield in politics. His humble nature won the representatives of Raigad for the coronation.
Rajmata Jijabai passed away in 12 days after Shivaji Maharaj was coronated. There was no one to look after SambhajiRajas with eye care. Shivaji Maharaj was engaged in Swarajya politics and the battlefield. There is a difference of opinion among Shivaji Maharaj in the court of young SambhajiRaje of the burning blood.
There was a strong opposition to Satyaje Raja’s corrupt administration of Amanaji Dutt. Shivaji Maharaj often neglected his corrupt administration as Annaji was an experienced and skilled administrator. But SambhajiRaje was not able to accept it. Once in the history of Annaji, Sambhaji Maharaj said, ‘Abasaheb, see that our deceit has come.’ For these reasons, Annaji Datto and other experienced masters went against Sambhaji Raje.
Soyarabai and some gentlemen in the court gave humiliation to Sambhaji Raje.
Because of their opposition, they could not go with Shivaji Maharaj to the South Hindustan campaign.
In the absence of Shivaji Maharaj, the Ashtapapadnam Mandal refused to obey Sambhaji Raje’s order. Therefore, Shivaji Maharaj had to send Sambhaji Maharaj as the headmaster of Shringarpur in Konkan. Shivaji Maharaj, who had been battling heavy enemies like Afzal Khan and Shahist Khan, unfortunately proved helpless to the family.
As the Governor of Shringarpur, SambhajiRaj did not seek tax collection for one year from drought-hit people. When Soyarabai and the court officials, SambhajiRaje is an irresponsible administrator and started preaching that he is not suitable as the heir to the state. Soyarabai expected that Shivaji Maharaj would be announcing Rajaram’s name as the heir to the state.
