The letter states that if anyone is absent from the meet it will be considered as quitting the party. The the Shiv Sena issues whip to party MLAs to attend the meet this evening.

Rebel leader Eknath Shinde has termed the whip illegal.  Adding to this, CM Uddhav Thackeray has tested positive for Covid-19, as per senior Congress leader Kamal Nath.

Meanwhile, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma did not rule out the possibility of meeting the Maharashtra Sena MLAs.
