That party said to me that we have taken a historic decision and they have assured me to all possible help. Eknath Shinde is presently camping in Guwahati along with the 37 rebel Shiv Sena MLAs and nine independent MLAs too. Let you know The NCP and Congress also share power in the Uddhav Thackeray-led government.

Meanwhile, speaking to meadia persons in Mumbai, Ajit Pawar, when asked whether the opposition BJP has a role to play in the ongoing political crisis in the state, said, “So far, no top BJP leader has been at the forefront. Has been observed the situation.” State NCP chief Jayant Patil said the MVA enjoys a majority. “The rebels have not left the Shiv Sena. Currently they are angry now and will return,” he said.
