The Maharashtra Uddhav government’s issues appear to be getting worse



Mumbai: It appears that the Uddhav government’s issues in Maharashtra are becoming worse. Shiv Sena MLAs are still in the process of switching sides, despite the Chief Minister Thackeray’s appeals. Three additional MLAs arrived in Guwahati this morning. Four more MLAs joined the Shinde faction in Guwahati earlier on Wednesday. Around 8 p.m. on Wednesday, four MLAs who were in Guwahati arrived at the Radisson Blu Hotel. Along with other opposition MLAs, Eknath Shinde is staying at this hotel. According to the news, Chandrakant Patil, the president of the Maharashtra BJP, and the four MLAs who arrived in the evening travelled to Guwahati from Surat.

The Shiv Sena MLAs who travelled to Guwahati also include Gulabrao Patil and Yogesh Kadam. Manjula Gavit and Chandrakant Patil, the other two lawmakers, are independents. Mangesh Kudalkar of Kurla and Sada Sarwankar of Dadar are reportedly travelling to Guwahati today, according to sources. It’s unclear if these two are part of the MLA who just arrived in Guwahati this morning. The number of Shiv Sena MLAs supporting Shinde would increase to 36 if these MLAs do as is reported and another 12 MLAs are also rumoured to be supporting Shinde.

#WATCH | Assam: Last night, after four more MLAs arrived at the hotel, Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde and other MLAs were at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Guwahati.

In the meantime, the Shinde faction handed Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari a letter signed by 34 MLAs yesterday. Eknath Shinde is the Shiv Sena Legislature Party’s leader, as stated in the letter. The new Chief Whip has been chosen, and his name is Bharat Gogavale. On Tuesday, the Shiv Sena deposed Shinde as the head of the legislative party. After the lengthy meetings on Wednesday, late that evening, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray made an unexpected choice. He fled the CM house and eventually found Matoshree (his home). Additionally, he appeared live on Facebook and urged the rebels to approach them and engage in dialogue.
