"I am a Jee Huzur man. Whenever asked to step down (by High Command) I oblige. I left power(as Chief Minister of Maharashtra) once and Vilasrao Deshmukh did it twice. Both of us are 'Jee Huzur'," said Shinde addressing a Congress workers' rally at Latur, the home town of former Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh.

In the televised speech shown on a Marathi channel, Shinde appeared to be giving enlightening tips on Congress High Command's directives that are binding on all party leaders.

The last instance of Deshmukh's relinquishing Chief Ministership was in the aftermath of the November 26 Mumbai terror attack. Shinde is the Congress candidate contesting from Solapur Lok Sabha constituency.
