Shiv Sena MLAs get into an abusive argument over Uddhav Thackeray’s insistence on CM post: Reports

The party MLAs were reportedly angry because the entire party was paying the price for a post that would only benefit one person from the Thackeray clan

In a significant development in Maharashtra politics, massive unrest is being reported within Shiv Sena resulting in party chief Uddhav Thackeray allowing the legislators to return to their respective constituencies, reports Times Now.

According to the reports, amidst the ongoing power tussle in Maharashtra, a fight erupted between Shiv Sena elected MLAs as they engaged in abusive arguments over Uddhav Thackeray’s insistence on the post of Chief Minister of Maharashtra. Shiv Sena MLA Aaditya Thackeray had to rush to the hotel on Tuesday night following a revolt by Sena MLAs.

Shiv Sena MLAs are currently kept at The Retreat Hotel in Mumbai’s Malad due to the fear of poaching. Reportedly, the fight between Shiv Sena MLAs took place at the resort on Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

The Shiv Sena MLAs were reportedly angry about the entire party being held to ransom over the whims of Uddhav Thackeray. The alliance between BJP and Shiv Sena failed because of Shiv Sena’s insistence that the Chief Minister post should be reserved for Shiv Sena’s Aditya Thackeray. The party MLAs were reportedly angry because the entire party was paying the price for a post that would only benefit one person from the Thackeray clan.

Shiv Sena, which emerged as the second-largest party in the 288-member Maharashtra Assembly, quit its alliance with the BJP after it decided to tie-up with NCP-Congress in an expectation that the party could get the post of Chief Minister. However, NCP-Congress alliance dumped Shiv Sena, forcing the Maharashtra governor to enforce the President’s rule in the state.

In a hurry to form the government in Maharashtra by joining hands with NCP-Congress, Shiv Sena had even pulled out its MP Aravind Sawant from the NDA government. However, both NCP and Congress backtracked regarding their support to Shiv Sena and clarified that they have not sent any letter of support for Shiv Sena.

After facing a huge embarrassment for failure to garner enough number to form a government and getting dumped by NCP-Congress, the defeated Shiv Sena has now hoped for a reconciliation with its pre-poll alliance partner BJP.
