Maharashtra crisis: MLAs who are still with Uddhav Thackeray camp. Check list
- Maharashtra political crisis: A poster war between the Thackeray and Shinde-led camps as numbers are stacked against the Maharashtra chief minister.
Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray is left with 16 MLAs on his side after six more legislators joined the Eknath Shinde-led faction in Guwahati on Thursday. Deepak Kesarkar, Sada Sarvankar, Mangesh Kudalkar, Sanjay Rathod and Dadaji Bhuse were among those who joined the rebel camp today.
Though Thackeray's camp has been claiming to have numbers on its side, saying many MLAs lodged in a Guwahati hotel are in touch with them, it has shown willingness to discuss the party's future with the NCP-Congress coalition. Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut asked the rebel MLAs to come back to Mumbai if they want the party to leave the ruling coalition.
“If the rebel MLAs want Shiv Sena to pull out of MVA then they must make an official representation to Shiv Sena chief. We will discuss it but show the courage to come back to Mumbai. They must come back in 24 hours,” said Raut.
Meanwhile, the Shinde-led faction posed for a photograph in the hotel in a show of strength to challenge the current coalition government.
