Udhav Thackeray government: Shiv Sena leader and minister Eknath Shinde has arrived in Surat with 26 MLAs. He is said to be missing even before the results of the MLC elections were announced last night. But this crisis is much bigger for the Udhav Thackeray government. The reason for this is that among the missing leaders are not only Eknath Shendeh but also two other ministers, Abdul Sattar and Shamburai Desai. Desai is the Minister of State for Home Affairs in the Uddhav Thackeray government. Apart from this, son of Eknath Shinde and Shiv Sena MP Shrikant Shinde is also in La Meridien Hotel in Surat. It is said that BJP Gujarat chief CR Patel has made arrangements for these leaders to stay and the police are heavily guarded outside so that no political person can contact the MLAs. A total of 15 leaders of MLAs missing from Shiv Sena.
Those in Surah with Eknath Shind include MLAs-
Abdul Sattar (Minister in the Council of Ministers)
Shampuraj Desai (Minister of State for Home Affairs).
Chandrakant Patil (Independent MLA) Balaji Kalyankar
Prakash Anandrao Abikar
MP Shrikant Shinde (son of Eknath Shinde)
The troubleshooter has just increased the crisis
Eknath Shinde Shiv Sena helped during the Narayan Rane and Raj Thackeray’s rebellion. He went out with the old leaders. Most MLAs have had agreements multiple times and have been with the party since its inception. His son is a representative of Kalyan Dombivli. Many of these leaders expressed their dissatisfaction with the NCP, but because the party chief was not heard, resentment continued to grow. It is said that Udhav Thackeray and Aditya Thackeray are now in the government and in such a case Eknath Shinde emerged as the leader of the dissidents.
