The political crisis in Maharashtra is deepening. Shiv Sena rebel leader Eknath Shinde said on Wednesday that more than 40 MMAs from Maharashtra had escorted him to Guwahati in Assam. Under the leadership of Eknath Shinde, the rebellious MLAs of Shiv Sena suddenly arrived at Surat in Gujarat from Mumbai. No one even knew about his passing. Now the question arises whether the movement of the group of 22 MLAs did not go unnoticed by the Mumbai Police.
Mumbai Police, operating under the Maharashtra state government, reports to NCP Home Minister Dilip Wallis Patel. So questions are also put to Maharashtra Home Minister. The MLA had flown from Mumbai to Surat in the Bharatiya Janata Party-ruled Gujarat state late Monday night. Was the state home secretary unaware of the movements of the MLAs whose security details were made available by the police?
Now in the claim on Shiv Sena, said Eknath Shinde, the real one is ours; The question on the whip
According to an NDTV report, NCP leader Sharad Pawar held a meeting with Dilip Valls Patel and Jayant Patel along with other party leaders this morning. The report quoted sources as saying that Pawar expressed his dissatisfaction and questioned the reason for the lack of intelligence information about Shinde’s exit with Jaysh Tahrir al-Sham in the dark of night. Yesterday, Sharad Pawar described the Eknath Shinde rebellion as an internal crisis for Shiv Sena and said he was confident that Prime Minister Udav Thackeray would solve it.
However, there does not seem to be a solution to this crisis for this Shiv Sena head. The rebels moved from Surat in Gujarat to Guwahati in Assam. Soon after landing at Guwahati, Shinde claimed to have 46 MLAs on his side, including 45 Shiv Sena and independent. The BJP needs 37 MLAs plus 106 to remove Uddhav Thackeray and get a vote of confidence. For this, Shinde claims to have enough MLAs to enable the coup.

Significantly, the Shiv Sena MLAs rebelled against the party, due to the Maha Vikas Agadi (MVA) government of Maharashtra, led by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, in trouble. “We are committed to the Hindutva ideology of Pallas Thackeray and we want to move forward,” Eknath Shinde told reporters. When asked why he came to Guwahati, he said, “It’s good there is space.”
