Uddhav Thackeray is chatting live with people through Facebook. He said, ‘We fought the Corona crisis firmly. “I am preparing my resignation,” Thackeray said. Once these MLAs come and say that they do not want to see me become the CM. It’s not my compulsion. I have seen many such challenges. We have thousands of Shiv Sena workers with us. Today I am not afraid of any challenge. If anyone feels that I cannot lead Shiv Sena, then I am ready to give up the post of Shiv Sena President.
CM Uddhav Thackeray said that once Congress and NCP say that they do not want to see me as CM, then I can agree. This morning Kamal Nath and Sharad Pawar called and said that they trusted me. But what should I do now When someone says in their own way that they don’t want to see me become CM. If any MLA told me that they don’t want to see me become CM. That’s why I am ready to resign from the post of CM.
But what was the need to go to Surat for this? To say on one hand that they are not betraying Shiv Sena and on the other hand to do so is not appropriate.
Shivsena does not exist without Hindutva. I continued to work from the hospital. After 2014, the new Shiv Sena won the election. With the cooperation of the people, I got a chance to become the CM. I had the privilege of being among the top 5 chief ministers of the country in all the surveys conducted at that time. However, today I have raised other issues, not of Corona. Uddhav Thackeray said that we had gone to the Ram temple in the past, during which Eknath Shinde was also with us. After the death of Balasaheb Thackeray, we fought the 2014 elections alone and succeeded only on the issue of Hindutva. Shiv Sena and Hindutva are two sides of the same coin.
The high voltage drama that started in Maharashtra on Tuesday continued on Wednesday as well. In the midst of this drama, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray is addressing Jatna through Facebook. Rebel MLAs of BJP have reached Guwahati from Surat. At the same time, Uddhav Thackeray called a cabinet meeting. Whip issued against Eknath Shinde Eknath Shinde is claiming to have 46 MLAs with him. At the same time, Sanjay Raut said that due to the current political situation, the legislature is being dissolved. 34 MLAs of Shinde faction have expressed their support by sending letters to the governor.
Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde and other rebel MLAs staying at Le Meridien Hotel in Surat have reached Guwahati (Assam) from Gujarat. It is believed that the top leaders of the Assam BJP and the state government are making arrangements for the rebel Shiv Sena MLAs to stay in Guwahati. BJP MLAs also reached the airport to welcome him. This is probably the first time that legislators from the western state have been shifted to the northeastern state after revolting against the party leadership. After Shinde rebelled against the party and camped in Surat with some fellow MLAs, the Shiv Sena on Tuesday shifted its MLAs to hotels in Mumbai to escape the hunt.
