The government of Maha Vikas Aghadi, led by Shiv Sena, in Maharashtra is currently in political turmoil following an uprising by party leader Eknath Shinde. In a short speech to party workers, Sena Minister Aaditya Thackeray said this is a battle between truth and falsehood.
“You already know what was discussed at the meeting, the most important thing is that we will not forget the betrayal of Shiv Sena’s rebel MLAs. We (Shiv Sena) will definitely win,” Aaditya Thackeray said as she opened the party office in Mumbai left. †
Mr Shinde, a minister in the Uddhav Thackeray cabinet and a heavyweight from the Thane district, has risen up against the party and has left the MVA government, which also includes the NCP and Congress, on the brink of pushed into the abyss.
Mr Shinde has claimed the support of nearly 40 MLAs, all of whom are currently in Guwahati in Assam.
The Shiv Sena said today it would take action against the rebels by Saturday night as they headed to launch a spin-off party called “Shiv Sena Balasaheb Thackeray”.
