Mumbai: As the political crisis continues to unveil in Maharashtra, Chief Minister and Shiv Sena chief

Uddhav Thackeray’s wife Rashmi Thackeray has been contacting the wives of other MLAs to convince them to speak to their husbands. According to sources, Uddhav Thackeray has also been texting some rebel MLAs who are currently camping in the Bhartiya Janata Party-ruled Assam.

On Saturday, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray held a national executive meeting with Sena leaders, passed resolutions, and moved the Election Commission (EC) to restrict any other political outfit or faction from using the name of “Shiv Sena” and its founder late “Balasaheb Thackeray.”This resolution coincidentally gets passed on the same day when there were reports of the Eknath Shinde lead rebel camp planning to name their party “Balasaheb Shiv Sena.”

The current political turmoil in the state was triggered by Eknath Shinde, who, along with several MLAs, went incommunicado after the MLC poll results. They are currently camping in a hotel in Guwahati. More MLAs, including independents, have joined the rebel camp since then.

287 is the total strength of the Maharashtra Assembly and the majority, in the event of a trust vote, is 144. The ruling coalition of Shiv Sena, NCP, and Congress has 169 seats. If the MLAs led by¬† Eknath Shinde do resign, then the Maharashtra¬† Vikas Aghadi’s (MVA) strength will fall below the majority mark, leading to the collapse of the Uddhav Thackeray-led government.

Meanwhile, Shiv Sena National Spokesperson Sanjay Raut on Sunday tweeted “How long will you hide in Guwahati? You will have to come back to Chowpatty, “along with an image of Maharashtra Assembly Deputy Speaker Narhari Zirwal, who has served notices to 16 rebel MLAs on the Sena disqualification plea.
