Rebel Sena MLA Writes to CM Thackeray, Claiming Shinde Opposed Leadership for Party Legislators' Rig

Updated: Jul 19

Rogue Shiv Sanjay Shirsat, a Sena MLA, claims in a letter to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray that Sena MLAs, who endured "humiliation" for the past two and a half years, pushed state minister Eknath Shinde to act against the party leadership.

In a letter dated June 22, Shirsat, an MLA from the Aurangabad (West) Assembly constituency, alleged that despite the Shiv Sena being in power and having its chief minister, Thackeray's entourage never granted them access to the CM's official mansion, called "Varsha."

He claimed that since the chief minister never visited the state secretariat, "Mantralaya," there was no question of going there.

Shinde released the letter on his Twitter account and said that the Sena MLAs shared the same views.

Shinde is presently camped out in Guwahati, Assam, with a few rebel MLAs, throwing the Sena-led Maharashtra government into disarray.

Shirsat claimed in the letter that Eknath Shinde provided access for party MLAs to voice their complaints, concerns about the development work being done in their districts and the associated fund, and issues with partners Congress and the NCP.

"Only Shinde listened to us and took action to fix every issue. For the rights of all legislators, the party MLAs pushed Shinde to take this action (or revolt), according to Shirsat's letter.

He asserted that the Congress and NCP, the Shiv Sena's "true opponents," were receiving all the attention while the Shiv Sena MPs had no access to the chief minister.

Aaditya Thackeray, the chief minister of Maharashtra, was not permitted to travel to Ayodhya, according to Shirsat (during his recent visit).

"If the Shiv Sena votes did not diverge in the Rajya Sabha elections, why is there such a lack of confidence in us for the Legislative Council elections?" He queried.
