Shiv Sena MLAs joining the party’s rebellious group led by state minister Eknath Shinde.
The political turmoil in Maharashtra on Thursday intensified further with seven more Shiv Sena MLAs joining the party’s rebellious group led by state minister Eknath Shinde. Three more Sena MLAs have reached the Radisson Blu Hotel in Guwahati today where the rebel MLAs have been camping since Wednesday. Earlier yesterday night, four MLAs of Shiv Sena reached Guwahati to extend their support to Eknath Shinde, who was at the centre of the Maharashtra political crisis, further deepening the political instability in the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi government in the state. Moreover, a resolution passed by the Shiv Sena Legislature Party carrying signatures of 34 MLAs that rebel leader Eknath Shinde continues to be the leader, has been sent to the state Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari. Meanwhile, Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray left his official residence ‘Varsha’ along with his family members on Wednesday hours after he expressed his readiness to step down if rebel MLAs returned to Mumbai and made such a demand.
