“There Will Be Earthquake If I Start Speaking”: Eknath Shinde

Shinde questions thackeray
Questioning Uddhav Thackeray’s decision to join hands with the Nationalist Congress Party and Congress, Eknath Shinde said that there will be earthquake if he starts speaking.

Mumbai: Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde on Saturday warned Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray by saying, there will be an earthquake if he starts speaking in interviews. The leader was speaking in a rally in Malegaon.

“There will be an earthquake if I start giving interviews. Unlike some people, I never travelled abroad every year for holidays. Shiv Sena and its growth were the only things on my mind,” Shinde said.

Without mentioning the former CM Uddhav Thackeray’s name he said, “What do you call those who compromise with Balasaheb’s ideology just to become chief minister?” He further questioned that Shiv Sena fought elections in alliance with the BJP but formed a government with Congress and NCP.

“Isn’t this a betrayal?”, Shinde asserted.

Thackeray resigned from his position of the Maharashtra CM in June after Shinde and other Shiv Sena MLAs rebelled against his coalition government that is MVA with the Congress and NCP. Uddhav Thackeray had often referred to the rebel MLAs as “traitors”.

Eknath Shinde further claimed that the Sena faction led by him and BJP would together win 200 out of 288 seats in the next Assembly elections.

The late Sena leader Anand Dighe was also referenced by Shinde, who claimed to know what had happened to him. I was a witness to what happened with ‘Dharmaveer,” Shinde stated in reference to his mentor who passed away in a car accident in 2002.
