Maharashtra Crisis: MVA Will Back Uddhav Thackeray, Says Sharad Pawar | As It Happened

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.

    MVA has decided to back Uddhav Thackeray: Sharad Pawar

    MVA decided to back CM Uddhav Thackeray. I believe once the (Shiv Sena) MLAs return to Mumbai the situation will change. Everyone knows how the rebel Shiv Sena MLAs were taken to Gujarat and then Assam. We don't have to take the names of all those assisting them... Assam government is helping them. I don't need to take any names further, says NCP chief Sharad Pawar.

    Rebel Sena leaders in a letter shared by Eknath Shinde

    When Hindutva and Ram Mandir are crucial issues for the party, then why did the party stop us from visiting Ayodhya. MLAs were called & were stopped from going to Ayodhya during Aaditya Thackeray's visit to Ayodhya.

    While we weren't able to meet the CM, people from our 'real opposition'-- the Congress & the NCP used to get opportunities to meet him & even funds were given to them related to work in their constituencies. 

    Despite having a Shiv Sena CM in the state the party MLAs didn't use to get the opportunity to visit Varsha Bungalow (CM's residence). People around the CM used to decide if we can meet him or not. We felt we were insulted.
