Maharashtra political crisis: Amid reports of Sharad Pawar advising Thackeray on giving up the top job to the rebel leader, Sena MP Sanjay Raut said no such discussions happened during the NCP leader’s visit to the CM’s residence.
The chief minister, in his virtual address to the state, said he is ready to resign from the post even if a single MLA from the party has lost their trust in him, but asked them to meet him and say it on his face.
Breaking his silence over the revolt, Thackeray said he has no hunger for the CM’s chair, but wanted to know if the rebellion will help bring back another Shiv Sainik to the post.
Shinde has said the Sena needs to come out of the “unnatural alliance” for the party’s survival. Thackeray heads a coalition government with the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress.
Meanwhile, amid reports of Pawar advising Thackeray on giving up the top job to the rebel leader, Sena MP Sanjay Raut said no such discussions happened during the NCP leader's visit to the CM's residence.
“Uddhav Thackeray is Maharashtra chief minister and he will remain so,” he said.
