CM Eknath Shinde Attacks Team Uddhav Thackeray After Victory In Speaker Election

Following the victory in Maharashtra assembly speaker election, CM Eknath Shinde opened an attack against his old boss Uddhav Thackeray and said while everyone expected BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis to be the chief minister, Shinde personally never wanted the post. It was his destiny, he said. “Till date, we saw people change sides from the opposition the government but this time leaders of the government went to the opposition,” Shinde said.

After Shinde led a rebellion in Shiv Sena taking away more than two thirds of the parties MLAs, the MVA government led by Uddhav Thackeray had collapsed.

Talking of the rebellion, Shinde claimed that it was a huge thing for a common worker that so many MLAs, including ministers, left the government. “This was a huge thing for a common worker like me who was devoted to the ideology of Balasaheb Thackeray and Anand Dighe,” he added.

Taking swipe at Thackeray camp which had claimed to be in touched with several rebel MLAs, Shinde said, “Some said, we are in touch with some MLAs, sometimes it’s 5, then 10, 20, and 25. I asked to name them. Whatever the perception or anticipation, it turned out to be wrong.”

“BJP has 115 MLAs and I have 50. But still BJP showed a bigger heart and gave me the CM post. I want to thank PM Modi, Amit Shah and JP Nadda. I had no expectations for the CM post,” the newly elected Chief Minister said.

“Several issues need to be raised like the condition of the farmers. Several issues and problems are being faced by the people of the state, we hope that justice would be provided to them,” CM Shinde said. He added that all the proceedings in the Assembly would be in line with the Constitution.
