Maharashtra Political Crisis: Thackeray to hold National Executive meet today

Maharashtra Political Crisis underway; big decisions lie ahead for Shiv Sena party, party executives to meet today at 1 p.m.

As the Maharashtra political crisis continues over the possible ousting of Siv Sena and rebel group leader Eknath Shinde. Hence, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has called for a National Shiv Sena Executive meet today at 1 p.m. The crisis has left the state government in uncertainty and chaos. Reports make it clear that leader Eknath Shinde has the support of almost two-thirds of the party’s MLAs. But Uddhav Thackeray has the growing support of NCP and Congress.

Thackeray will join virtually. The executive members included tourism minister Aaditya Thackeray, former chief minister Manohar Joshi, industry minister Subhas Desai, former ministers Leeladhar Dhake, Diwakar Raote and Ramdas Kadam, party MPs Sanjay Raut and Gajanan Kirtikar, former MPs Anant Geete, Anand Adbul and Chandrakant Khaire.


Shiv Sena leadership under Uddhav Thackeray has made statements against the BJP before. For supporting and inciting a rebel movement within the Shiv Sena party. And that they were “responsible for the quarrel and disturbance that the party faces now”. Shiv Sena had also dug out old wounds allegedly inflicted by the BJP on the country. Moreover, Samanna had pointed out that the BJP has created a lot of chaos over the years such as in the state of Kashmir and perhaps their target is now Maharashtra.
