Mumbai: In the breaking development in Maha crisis and Amidst Sena rebellion, CM said on FB live that he is the someone who is not behind a chair after that Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray left the CM’s house Varsha on Wednesday night and went to his family residence Matoshree.

In such a situation, he got down outside Matoshree and greeted the workers. Here, Eknath Shinde is camping in Guwahati along with party MLAs. Gradually, their upper hand is becoming heavy, due to which there is a possibility of the situation getting worse.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday night moved from his official residence in south Mumbai to family home ‘Matoshree’ in suburban Bandra, hours after Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde offered to step down amid the rebellion. Breaking his silence on the government crisis ahead of leaving the bungalow, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday said he is ready to step down if the rebel MLAs declare that they do not want to see him (Thackeray) as the chief minister. .

Mr Thackeray has tested positive for Covid. But his shift to the family home, strongly associated with party founder and father Balasaheb Thackeray, was seen as carrying a message.

Earlier on Wednesday, delivering a Facebook live address — his first public reaction to the political crisis that engulfed his government — Mr Thackeray said, “If my own people don’t want me as Chief Minister, he should walk up to me and say so… I’m ready to resign… I am Balasaheb’s son, I am not after a post… If you want me to resign, let me resign and take all my belongings to Matoshree”.

There, however, was a rider. “I’m willing to step down, but can you promise me that the next chief minister will be from Shiv Sena?”

Shiv Sena rebel Eknath Shinde, who is camping in Guwahati, has claimed that he has the support of 34 MLAs of his party and has reinstated himself as the leader of the Shiv Sena legislature party by passing a resolution on Wednesday evening. A day before this, the Shiv Sena leadership removed him from the post of Legislature Party leader.

The letter released by the Shinde camp said the Shiv Sena leadership’s decision to break ties with the BJP after the 2019 Maharashtra elections had a “negative” impact on party workers and voters. The Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena has 55 MLAs in the 288-member Maharashtra Assembly.

According to the provisions of the anti-defection law, merger requires the consent of two-thirds of the members of a legislature party who have consented to merge with another political party. Shinde will have to ensure the support of 37 MLAs (two-thirds of the 55 MLAs) to avoid disqualification.
