Mumbai, ANI. Due to the rebellion of Shiv Sena MLAs, the end of Mahavikas Aghadi coalition government in Maharashtra was considered certain. At the same time, now Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut has given a big statement regarding the alliance. Sanjay Raut on Thursday said that Shiv Sena is ready to come out of Mahavikas Aghadi if the rebel MLAs return to Mumbai within 24 hours.
Sanjay Raut said, ‘MLAs should not communicate with Guwahati, they should come back to Mumbai and discuss all this with the CM. We are ready to consider exit from Mahavikas Aghadi if all the MLAs so desire, but for this they will have to come here and discuss it with the CM. After the statement of Sanjay Raut, there has been an earthquake in the politics of Maharashtra.
Earlier, Sanjay Raut had claimed contact with 21 rebel MLAs. Sanjay Raut had said that CM Uddhav Thackeray will return to Varsha Bungalow very soon. He said that 21 MLAs in Guwahati have approached us and when they return to Mumbai, they will come with us.
We have no problem – Congress
After the statement of Sanjay Raut, the reaction of Congress has also come to the fore. Maharashtra Congress chief Nana Patole said, ‘We are with Shiv Sena to stop BJP from coming to power. This game is happening because of ED. Congress is ready for floor test. We are and will remain with Mahavikas Aghadi, we have no greed for power. Patole also said that if Shiv Sena wants to form an alliance with anyone, then we have no problem.
What did NCP say?
Apart from this, Jayant Patil, leader of NCP, an ally in Maha Vikas Aghadi, has tweeted. Patil said that Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi is a government established for the development and welfare of Maharashtra. We stand firmly with Uddhavji Thackeray till the end. I am sure that no true Shiv Sainik will behave in such a way that betrays the views of respected Balasaheb Thackeray.
