Maharashtra Political Crisis: Eknath Shinde Turns To MNS Leader Raj Thackeray

As the Maharashtra politics continues to witness its darkest hour with many Shiv Sena leaders rebelling against the Uddhav Thackeray-led MVA government, rebel Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde has turned to Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) Chief Raj Thackeray. As per an MNS Leader, Eknath Shinde spoke to Raj Thackeray about the political turmoil that Maharashtra is witnessing right now. He further added that Mr Shinde talked to him twice and also enquired about his health. “Rebel Shiv Sena MLA Eknath Shinde spoke to MNS Chief Raj Thackeray over the phone twice. Shinde spoke to Thackeray about the recent political situation in Maharashtra and enquired about his health,” confirmed the MNS leader. Meanwhile, on Sunday, the rebel leader who is camping in Assam currently lashed out at the Shiv Sena party for supporting the culprits of the Mumbai bomb blast, including Dawood Ibrahim. “Even if we have to die to follow the ideology of Hindutva, we will consider it as our destiny,” wrote Shinde on Twitter. Interestingly, Eknath Shinde has named their group as ‘Shiv Sena Balasaheb’. However, Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray has reacted sharply to it and said that whoever has left the party should not seek votes in the name of the party founder Balasaheb Thackeray.
