MVA crises updates: The MVA coalition is in the midst of a very public political turmoil. With Eknath Shinde at the epicenter.
Admist the ongoing disagreements, Aaditya Thackeray took to Twitter to drop the word ‘Minister’ from his Twitter bio. Hence, sparking speculations of whether Shiv Sena is giving up mid crisis. It is not known whether it is a conciliatory gesture to the rebel MLAs who have a problem with his rise to power. Or whether it’s a stoic acceptance of things to come. Since there is no official reason behind Thackeray’s move, one can only wait for further updates to gain some clarity.
In other updates, Eknath Shinde, the rebel Shiv Sena MLAs and some Independent MLAs. Who were staying at Le Meridien hotel in Surat, reached Guwahati in the early hours of Wednesday. It’s now a full-blown crisis for the the Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra. Moreover, with Shinde – clearly hosted by the BJP – is gathering momentum.
Shiv Sena leaders are trying to deal with the crisis in a more conciliatory manner with Uddhav Thackeray apparently having a 20 minute long phone call with Eknath Shinde, convincing him to come back to Shiv Sena. Whereas Eknath Shinde, upon landing in Guwahati, told reporters there were 40 MLAs present along with him. Who would “carry forward Balasaheb Thackeray’s Hindutva”.
Further updates are awaited.
