Maharashtra Crisis: Eknath Shinde Speaks To MNS Chief Raj Thackeray

Amidst the ongoing political tussle in the politics of Maharashtra, rebel Shivsena leader Eknath Shinde has spoken to MNS chief Raj Thackeray on phone. Looking at the technical complications of the entire case, the rebel MLAs may have to join a party in order to save their membership. 

While the sources close to Eknath Shinde claim that Shinde has spoken to Raj Thackeray about his health, but somewhere it’s clear that the ongoing political tussle has led to a split in Shivsena where both Uddhav Thackeray and Eknath Shinde are making their claims. 

Raj Thackeray, cousin of Uddhav Thackeray, once used to be a senior leader of Shivsena and close to late Balasaheb Thackeray, but then he quit the party and former his own MNS – Maharashtra Navnirmana Sena. As per the sources, the rebel MLAs are looking for an option to join, which maybe the BJP or some other party due to technical complications. 

The Shivsena workers across the state have been protesting against the rebels and even vandalised the offices of some MLAs. Amidst this, Maharashtra governor Bhagat Singh Koshiyari has ordered the state DGP to secure the family members of the rebel MLAs. 

On the other hand, the Supreme Court has started its hearing on the plea of rebel MLAs camping in Guwahati. The MVA government will be represented by senior Congress leader Adv Abhishek Manu Singhvi, while senior advocate Harish Salve will be appearing on behalf of the rebel MLAs. Today’s hearing will play a major role in deciding the future of not just the MVA government but also the Shivsena and its rebel MLAs.
