Udhhav Thackeray and Eknath Shinde’s meet will boost the image of Shiv Sena,making the reunion a happier moment for Sainiks, says Raut.
Mumbai: Shiv Sena MP, on Sunday said that it will be a happier moment if Uddhav Thackeray and rebel leader Eknath Shinde, the current Maharashtra Chief Minister reunite. The day after the party leader and Marathi actoress Deepali Sayeed announced the possibility of Uddhav and Shinde coming together.
Raut told The Indian Express that it will be a new dawn for the Sena and will boost its image too, definitely being a happy moment for Shiv Sena as a whole.
Previously Deepali Sayeed tweeted, “I feel extremely good to know that in the next two days, honourable Uddhav saheb and honourable Chief Minister Eknath Shinde will be coming together for discussion keeping the sentiments of Shiv Sainiks in mind. Shinde saheb has understood the sentiments of Shiv Sainiks, while Uddhav-ji has performed the role of a family head with a large heart. I also would like to thank the BJP for playing the role of a mediator. Will wait to know the venue of the meeting.”

Reacting to her tweet, Raut said that she isn’t the spokesperson of our party so she should better be careful of what she says. “Yes, I too feel the same way. They (rebel group) are our own people. If both leaders and all Sainiks come together, the party will be a happy unit, They are our own people. These days, they are criticising me for my statements which were made when they suddenly dumped the party. At that particular moment, we were all shaken and angry. And in such a moment, you don’t expect people to praise those who left. Whatever was said was in anger,” he further added. The MP said rebel leaders who criticized him should introspect a bit.
A Shiv Sena faction led by Eknat Shinde raised the banner of rebellion in Maharashtra, which led to Thackeray’s resignation as chief minister and the overthrow of the coalition government of Maha Vikas Agadi (MVA). On June 30, Shinde was sworn in as the new chief minister of the BJP-Shinde government.
