Maharashtra Crisis: Shinde Plans To Make A New Party – Shivsena (Balasaheb Thackeray) With Rebel MLAs

Amidst the ongoing political crisis in Maharashtra, the rebel camp headed by Eknath Shinde is planning to form its new party named “Shivsena (Balasaheb Thackeray). As per the media reports, there’s a difference of opinion amongst the Shivsena rebel MLAs to join the BJP, and on legal grounds, the battle for the party symbol would be a time consuming process which may even take months. 

On the other hand, in Mumbai, since yesterday, CM Uddhav Thackeray has been continuously holding meetings with Shivsena “nagar sevaks” and district heads from all across Maharashtra. Party MP and spokesperson Sanjay Raut has already claimed that more than 10 rebel MLAs are in touch with the Thackeray panel and they would support Uddhav Thackeray on the floor of the house. 

Meanwhile Uddhav Thackeray’s son and minister Aditya Thackeray has reached the Shivsena Bhawan to take a crucial meeting of the ground level workers. As per the sources, Aditya will be addressing the party workers in this meeting. The battle to save the government has turned into a battle to save the party now. 

Two days back, when CM Uddhav Thackeray left the Varsha (CM House), it was expected that he would resign, but then once again, NCP chief and political “chanakya” Sharad Pawar took over the reins of this entire battle and met CM Uddhav Thackeray. The Bharatiya Janata Party is still in the condition of wait and watch, as CM Uddhav Thackeray has requested the deputy speaker to disqualify 16 of the 38 rebel MLAs. 

This entire political tussle is expected to go on for a long time now on legal grounds. Eknath Shinde yesterday met a group of legal experts, while Uddhav Thackeray and Sharad Pawar are also cooking something interesting in their political kitchen. Though the Shinde panel is all set to go to the Court against Uddhav Thackeray’s request of disqualifying 16 rebel MLAs.
