A month after Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) leader Shishir Shinde met Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, speculations are rife that he is likely join the Sena. Shinde, who started his political career with the Sena, is likely to rejoin the party on its foundation day on June 19. He met the Sena chief at a wedding last month, which started speculations about him switching loyalties.
Shinde said, “Even I’m hearing these things from the media. I would not like to comment on it.”
Once a staunch supporter of MNS, Shinde has not held any post in his current party for more than a year. According to MNS functionaries, he and MNS chief Raj Thackeray had a fall out in 2017.
Shinde was elected as an MLA in 2009, but was suspended before taking oath as a member. The 64-year-old politician shot to fame in 1991 after him and group of Shiv Sena party workers allegedly vandalised Wankhede stadium to disrupt a cricket match between India and Pakistan.
