“Sentiment Of MLAs”: Eknath Shinde’s 3 Page Bombshell Letter Over Uddhav’s Emotional Call

It also charged that Sena MLAs were not given funds for developmental works in their constituencies whereas NCP and Congress MLAs received funds easily.

New Delhi: Eknath Shinde, Rebel Shiv Sena leader, on Thursday tweeted a letter addressed to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray with the title, “This is the sentiment of MLAs,” amid the worsening political crisis in Maharashtra. Shinde, in his letter also claimed that he would not join Shiv Sena

MLA Sanjay Shirsat’s open letter outlined the grievances of opposition lawmakers. The chief minister’s mansion was allegedly inaccessible, according to the letter. “They (MLAs) had to wait hours at the gates to meet the CM; they were never allowed to meet the CM.”

Additionally, it claimed that while NCP and Congress MLAs received funding readily, Sena MLAs were denied funding for community development projects in their districts.

The MLA also brought up the event where Sena minister and CM’s son Aaditya Thackeray banned MLAs from visiting Ayodhya.

The letter was written in response to Thackeray’s speech on Wednesday, in which he made an emotional appeal to the rebels and offered to resign, declaring that he would be pleased if a Shiv Sainik took his place.

Speaking out about the rebellion being led by Thane-based Sena strongman Shinde, Thackeray said he was prepared to resign as chief minister if the rebel leader and the MLAs backing him, who are all camped out in Guwahati in BJP-run Assam, said they do not want him to stay in that position.

The CM said he was ready to give up the post of party president as well if Shiv Sainiks feel he isn’t capable of leading the outfit which is heading the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government, which also includes the NCP and the Congress.

“Why make statements from Surat (where rebels headed first on Monday night) and other places. Come and tell me on my face that I am incompetent to handle the post of Chief Minister and Shiv Sena president. I will resign immediately. I will keep my resignation letter ready and you can come and take it to the Raj Bhavan,” he said.
