There is no end to the political crisis in Maharashtra set off by dissident Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde.
Hours after Uddhav Thackeray, in an emotional address, said that he was ready to quit as chief minister if even one of his MLAs — not the rebels — came forward and demanded it, the Sena leadership has shown signs of a climbdown. Senior leader Sanjay Raut, considered close to Uddhav Thackeray, has said that they will consider walking out of the alliance provided that the disgruntled legislators returned to Mumbai in 24 hours.
Meanwhile, Eknath Shinde, who is camping in Guwahati along with rebel MLAs, claims to have the support of 41 Maharashtra legislators, including 35 from the Shiv Sena. The BJP maintains that the crisis within the Shiv Sena is their internal matter.
Meanwhile, two Shiv Sena MLAs — Kailash Patil and Nitin Deshmukh — returned to Mumbai today after having defected to the Eknath Shinde camp earlier. They were felicitated by senior sena leaders upon their return.
