New Delhi:
The political crisis in Maharashtra deepened on Friday with Shiv Sena claiming that a Union Minister had “threatened” Nationalist Congress Party leader Sharad Pawar. Meanwhile, rebel leader Eknath Shinde has demanded the support of 50 MLAs.

  1. Thirty -seven MLAs have written letters to the Governor and Deputy Speaker, naming Eknath Shinde the party chief of the legislature. The action came shortly after Team Uddav Thackeray filed a disqualification application for 12 rebels with the Deputy Speaker.

  2. “Who are you trying to scare? We know your make-up and the law too! According to the 10th Schedule of the Constitution (Schedule) whipping is for assembly work, not for meetings. There are many Supreme Court decisions in this regard.,” Tweeted Eknath Shinde . Sena has threatened lawmakers who skipped a party meeting of the legislature called by Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday with disqualification.

  3. Mr Shinde, 58, has reached the critical number of MLAs, 37, needed to split the party in a rally without violating anti-defection laws. Its total strength is now 42.

  4. As the rebel group led by Eknath Shinde gained more numbers, Shiv Sena on Thursday said it would consider withdrawing from Maharashtra’s alliance with the NCP and Congress Sharad Pawar but only if the rebels return “within 24 hours”.

  5. Eknath Shinde, camped in BJP -ruled Assam alongside rebel lawmakers, has demanded Sena sever his alliance with Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party, or NCP, saying that party leaders have suffered the most in the past two and a half years of the coalition rule.

  6. “Many times in the past the MLA informed Uddhav ji that either the Congress or the NCP, both tried to eliminate Shiv Sena. Many times the MLA asked for time from Uddhav ji to meet with him but he never met them,” said Sanjay Shirsat, a rebel. MLA, was heard saying in a tweet shared by Mr. Shinde.

  7. Congress and party Sharad Pawar – Shiv Sena’s coalition partner in Maharashtra – have said they are with Mr Thackeray. “We will fight together. The MVA will stay together,” said senior Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge.

  8. Supporters of Eknath Shinde have put up several posters in the town of Thane, adjacent to Mumbai, praising leader Shiv Sena for continuing the legacy of Hindutva by Balasaheb and Anand Dighe, who were Mr Shinde’s mentors.

  9. The BJP has denied allegations of reengineering “Operation Lotus” in Maharashtra. An Assamese BJP minister, however, is seen in pictures of Eknath Shinde and the rebels at the Guwahati hotel where they were staying.

  10. Mr Thackeray has said “his resignation letter is ready” and that “if Sena MPs state it to me, I will quit.” Being power -hungry, he said, is not in his DNA. “I am the son of Balasaheb,” he reminded his party, underlining the fact that his father did not take any position in various governments including his party.
