A major turning point has come to the political crisis in Maharashtra. The rebel camp led by Eknath Shinde on Thursday demanded the resignation of Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. Sources have revealed that the Eknath Shinde camp has demanded that the Shiv Sena break its alliance with the Congress and the NCP and they have refused to hold any talks before that happens.

Sources told Republic, “Uddhav Thackeray should first resign and break alliance with Congress, NCP, only then we will talk. We will not believe the assurances given by the Uddhav Thackeray camp.”

Uddhav Thackeray will continue as CM: Sanjay Raut

Earlier today, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said in a press conference that Uddhav Thackeray will continue to be the Chief Minister of Maharashtra despite his offer to resign. He also confirmed that the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA), an alliance of Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress, will win with a majority if the floor test is held.

“Uddhav Thackeray is not present at Varsha (the official residence of Maharashtra Chief Minister), but the media is standing outside it because you know he is the chief minister and he will be the chief minister,” Raut said.

Sanjay Raut claimed “Everyone is asking about Shiv Sena’s strategy, and what we are seeing in crisis in the state. But we have two MLAs, Kailash Patil and Nitin Deshmukh. They are present in Mumbai, one in Surat. one from Guwahati and the other from Guwahati. It was a real struggle for them to come to Mumbai. They were literally kidnapped and taken to the hotel.”

Uddhav Thackeray ‘ready to resign’

Surrounded by members of his own party and dwindling numbers, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday said he is “ready to resign” from his post. Delivering an emotional address via Facebook Live, Uddhav Thackeray expressed dismay at his ‘own people’ turning against him and said he was ready to tender his resignation on one condition – that his fellow Shiv Sainiks face him. And ask in person.

“We were opposed to Congress and NCP for 25-30 years. But I am grateful that both Congress and NCP are supporting me today, they are saying that we will stand with you. But it is my own people who are my people. Working together for centuries. Now questioning me. If my own MLAs want, I am ready to resign from the post of Chief Minister and Shiv Sena chief.”
