In this video, the rebel MLAs are seen unanimously authorising Mr Shinde to take further decision on their behalf as their group leader.
Mr Shinde, a Sena strongman from Thane, is seen saying in the video: “Our worries and happiness are the same. We are united and victory will be ours. There is a national party, a ‘mahashakti’…you know they vanquished Pakistan. That party has said that we have taken a historic decision and assured to provide all help.”
