Maha Crisis: More MLAs join Shinde Camp
Last night, three more Shiv Sena MLAs and two more independent MLAs reached Guwahati and joined the Shinde camp.
The political crisis in Maharashtra continues to grow leaps and bounds. Trouble continues to mount for the Aghadi government as more MLAs join the Eknath Shinde camp in Guwahati.
Last night, three more Shiv Sena MLAs and two more independent MLAs reached Guwahati and joined the Shinde camp in Radisson Blu Hotel.
With this, the strength in the rebel camp has reached a total of 54 MLAs consisting of the MLAs of Shiv Sena and independents.
Currently, the rebel camp in Radisson Blu consists of 45 Shiv Sena MLAs, nine independent MLAs, and a few MLAs from other political parties. Shiv Sena’s pro-Uddhav Thackeray camp is left with just 10 MLAs.
Now the situation is such that the Uddhav Thackeray-led Aghadi government may topple any moment as the strength in the rebel camp has reached a clear majority mark.
Noteworthy here is that the Maharashtra assembly consists of 288 seats, of which 285 are occupied. Any political front needs a strength of 143 to attain the majority mark.
Currently, the BJP’s strength in the Maharashtra assembly is 106. If we take the Maharashtra BJP MLAs along with the MLAs at the rebel camp in Guwahati, then their strength goes up to a total of 167.
Earlier on Thursday, members of Trinamool Congress (TMC) staged a massive protest on Thursday in front of Sena MLA’s rebel camp.
The protest was led by the party’s state president Ripun Bora. However, Bora and other protesting TMC members have been arrested by the police.
Meanwhile, Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray left his official residence ‘Varsha’ on Wednesday evening and moved back to ‘Matoshree’ his family home.
Thackeray had offered to step down even as he made a last-ditch effort to reach out to rebel party leader Eknath Shinde.
