MVA Looks on Sixers to Rout Shinde: "Surprised" NCP's Meet, Cong Relies on Kama(a)l, Sena's "Snatch-

Updated: Jul 19

Three more Shiv Sena MLAs left on Thursday for Guwahati in Assam to join the dissident group headed by cabinet member Eknath Shinde, dealing another blow to the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra. On Thursday afternoon, Shinde is anticipated to disclose a list of the MLAs who support him.

The Shiv Sena, meanwhile, asserted that they had the necessary experience to handle this circumstance. Sanjay Raut, the leader of the Shiv Sena, claimed that he is in contact with 20 MLAs. To resolve the severe political crisis that has enveloped the ruling coalition, the Congress and NCP have proposed that rebel Eknath Shinde be appointed as Chief Minister.

Around 2 pm, Shiv Sena dissident Eknath Shinde would reveal the list of supporters. Although he has stated that he has the support of 41 Sena MLAs, the list only contains 36 names as of right now. According to insiders, Shinde has been working to secure the backing of about 50 MLAs to ensure that he will pass the anti-defection test.

Shinde will determine when to return to Mumbai after consulting with the MLAs. After arriving in Guwahati on Wednesday, Shinde announced that 46 lawmakers, including some Independents, supported him. He is also putting together the paperwork necessary to obtain the Shiv Sena party symbol.

MPs from the Shiv Sena have also communicated with the renegade Eknath Shinde's group. Rajan Vichare, an MP from Thane, and Shrikant Shinde, an MP from Kalyan and the son of Eknath Shinde, are currently supporting Eknath Shinde. A few other MPs have, in the meantime, shown a desire to support Shinde without publicly declaring it.

While this was going on, TMC members, including party leader Ripun Bora, demonstrated in front of the Guwahati Radisson Blu Hotel where the Shiv Sena MLAs were staying.

According to Sanjay Raut, there are 20 MLAs in contact with the Uddhav Thackeray leadership as the Shiv Sena crisis shows no signs of abating. "Everything will be obvious when they arrive in Mumbai. Do we appear strained when you glance at our faces? It doesn't help to simply state that they are "Bala Saheb Bhakts." Not all party goers are devotees of Bala Saheb. The true devotees will remain with the group until death do them part.

NCP leader Sharad Pawar, deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar, state home minister Dilip Walse Patil, ministers Jayant Patil, and Jitendra Awhad, and party leader Sunil Tatkare are currently in a meeting. The NCP chief's home is where the meeting is being held.

According to sources, Sharad Pawar has told the top leaders to be ready for a floor test and that the NCP will support Uddhav Thackeray. NCP is optimistic that some Shiv Sena MLAs may reconsider and join Uddhav Thackeray's side once they return to Mumbai.

Congresswoman Priyanka Gandhi landed in Mumbai earlier today, according to reports, for a personal visit. Party chief Kamal Nath has been in Mumbai in the interim to maintain unity among the Congress flock.

Devendra Fadnavis, a former chief minister and prominent member of the BJP, has been holding back-to-back meetings at his home amid the state's turmoil. Since the morning, Fadnavis has been holding talks at his home with senior officials such as Girish Mahajan, Prasad Lad, and Ashish Shelar.
