Amidst the ongoing political turmoil in Maharashtra, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has fiercely targeted the rebel MLAs in the meeting of the district chiefs of Shiv Sena. Addressing the district and department heads on Friday, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray said that today the same MLAs who were raised by Shiv Sena are themselves engaged in destroying their party.
Thackeray said that the rebel MLAs have done the work of breaking the Shiv Sena and if you have the courage, then you can roam around the area without putting my photo. The Chief Minister has once again asked Shiv Sainiks to work for the party.
On Friday, Chief Minister and Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray had called a meeting of district chiefs at Shiv Sena Bhawan. Uddhav Thackeray attended this meeting through video conferencing. Uddhav said that the rebel MLAs are working to break Shiv Sena.
“I am not greedy for power and I don’t want to get into who is saying what about me,” he said. Taking a jibe at the rebel MLA and minister Eknath Shinde, Thackeray said that those who used to say that we will not leave Shiv Sena till death, they have left Shiv Sena before they die.
Taking a jibe at the rebel MLAs, Thackeray said that those who used to roam in their respective Vidhan Sabha with my photo in big vehicles, they should all come out on the road without my photo. Thackeray said that I do not feel bad at all about those who have left and why would I feel bad. I believe that the post of Chief Minister is an ambition which everyone has. I have not given up stubbornness, I still stand by my insistence.
Uddhav Thackeray once again said in an emotional tone that I used to think that my chief minister’s chair is shaking but in reality my spine is shaking.
Without naming the BJP, Thackeray alleged that the MLAs have been lured to his side by greed. Uddhav Thackeray while targeting Eknath Shinde said that what I have not done for Eknath Shinde. I gave him the best urban development ministry. If he is treating me like this even after getting all this, then that is his thinking.
Shiv Sena chief made serious allegations against rebel MLA Sanjay Rathod and said that when he was a minister, he was facing serious allegations but even after that I handled him. Thackeray said that you can take flowers of trees, you can also take branches but you cannot take trees. All of you who question the existence of Shiv Sena have to show what kind of loyalty they have to Shiv Sena.
Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s son Aditya Thackeray also addressed this meeting of district chiefs. Aditya said that those who are rebelling against Shiv Sena at this time have gone for money. Some people have betrayed Uddhav Thackeray. Those people will come to know in no time what has happened to them.
MLAs continue to leave
On the other hand, every day MLAs from Shiv Sena are rebelling and entering Eknath Shinde’s camp and increasing the difficulties of Uddhav Thackeray, but Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray was silent till now.
Dilip Mama Lande, who was in Mumbai with Shiv Sena MLAs till Thursday, has also reached Guwahati on Friday. Where he was welcomed by the rebel MLAs at the hotel gate. It is being told that at present, Eknath Shinde has the support of about 42 MLAs of Shiv Sena while 12 MLAs are said to be independent. In such a situation, around 54 MLAs are present in Guwahati hotel along with Eknath Shinde.
