Maharashtra’s political crisis: Uddhav Thackay will chair a crucial party meeting today

Published on

The ongoing crisis in Maha Vidkas Aghadi’s (MVA) government in Maharashtra has prompted Shiv Sena to call a meeting of party leaders on Friday, which included chief district coordinators and the district presidents. This was an attempt to build confidence.
At 12pm, Chief Minister Uddhav Thckeray will chair the meeting at Shiv Sena Bhawan Mumbai.
Sanjay Raut, leader of Shiv Sena, said that “Eknath Shinde faction” that is challenging us must realize that Shiv Sena workers have yet to get on the roads. These battles can be won either by law or on the road. Our workers would then travel on the roads if necessary.”
“Threats have been made to Sharad Pwar ji, a Central minister. These threats are made with the support of Modi Ji ?…and Amit Shah We are taking steps to disqualify (rebel) MLAs.
Eknath Shiv Sena appears to be holding firm, with the strength of his MLAs expected to surpass 50. More legislators will likely reach Guwahati on Friday, further increasing the political crisis in Maharashtra.
Thackeray’s situation is getting worse as his closest aide switches sides and the chief minister falls short of numbers.
Uddhav Thackeray has lost the Shiv Sena legacy. Eknath Shinde rebelled against his claims to be a Shivsainik. The battle for Balasaheb’s true legacy has begun.
Sanjay Bhosale (Deputy District Chief, Shiv Sena, Maharashtra’s Satara) arrives in Guwahati to urge party MLA Eknath Shide to go back to ‘Matoshree.
“Shiv Sena gave a lot to its MPLAs. They should go back to Matoshree,” he stated.
Eknath Shinde, a Guwahati-based hotelier, led a revolt that erupted in Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA), the Maharashtra government. This triggered a political crisis in Maha Vikas AGhadi (MVA). Shinde camp has received the support of 46 MLAs. This includes 37 Shiv Sena MLAs as well as nine independents. Shinde was authorized to take further action by the rebel MLAs on June 23, who were at Guwahati hotel since June 20.
Sanjay Shirsat (Shiv Sena MLA) claimed that Congress and Nationalist Congress Party are trying to remove Shiv Sena politically in Maharashtra. MLAs made numerous attempts to inform Chief Minster Uddhav Thackeray of the bad intentions of all alliance partners.
Sanjay Raut, leader Shiv Sena, even encouraged rebel MLAs in Mumbai to discuss their problems with Chief Minister Uddhav Thackay.
Raut also stated that the Shiv Sena is open to “consider exiting from the Maha Vikas Aghadi, (MVA), if this is a will of all MLAs”, but with a condition that rebel MLAs must convey the message directly and have a discussion with CM Uddhav Thackay.
The Shiv Sena faction headed by Chief Minister Uddhav Thckeray has filed a petition to the Deputy Speaker asking for the cancellation of 12 rebel MLAs, including Eknath Shinde’s membership. This was in protest at their “inability” to attend the Wednesday legislative party meeting.
Shinde is the only exception to Shiv Sena’s demand for disqualification.
The Shinde camp, however, has written to Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Sing Koshyari to confirm that Shinde remains the leader of the legislative party. Shinde also wrote to Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari regarding Shinde’s reaffirmation as leader of the Shiv Sena Legislature Party.
In the midst of ongoing turf wars within Shiv Sena the Shinde faction claimed that Bharat Gawale had been appointed Chief Whip.
Mallikarjun Kharge of Congress held the BJP-led central government in Maharashtra responsible for the current political crisis. In Maharashtra, around 40 Shiv Sena MLAs have rebelled against the Maha Vikas Aghadi(MVA) government. They are currently camping at Guwahati.
Kharge claimed that the BJP-led Centre was trying to “destabilise the strong” Maha Vikas Aghadi administration in view of the forthcoming presidential election next month. They need numbers to make Droupadi Murmu their presidential candidate in the poll slated for July 18.
Shinde also made a veiled mention to BJP, saying that “a big party” had told him that his decision “historic” was and that they would be there whenever he needed them.
However, BJP claimed that the Maharashtra crisis was an internal matter of Shiv Sena and that the party had nothing to do.
Jayant Patil, Nationalist Congress Party leader, stated that his party stands “firmly with Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray”.
