Eknath Shinde: Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde issued a stern warning to Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray. He said that if he starts talking, there will be an earthquake. He questioned why they contested the elections with BJP and then joined hands with NCP and Congress. He also said that he knows what happened to late Sena leader Anand Dighe. Referring to Shiv Sena leader and his teacher Anand Dighe, who died in a road accident in 2002, Shinde’s claim that he knew what happened and was an eyewitness became a hot topic in political circles. Now Shinde’s mention of him has become a topic of discussion.
Shinde indirectly responded to Uddhav Thackeray calling the rebel MLAs traitors. They will contest elections with BJP. He will become CM along with Congress and NCP. Isn’t this treason?’ Uddhav Thackeray said. Balasaheb Thackeray claimed that they were the original heirs. Shinde said that Balasaheb’s daughter-in-law and grandson, who recently joined his faction, also supported him.
Shinde expressed confidence that he will compete with the BJP in the next election and take power once again. He claimed that his Shiv Sena and BJP together will win 200 seats out of a total of 288 seats.
