Nagpur/Mumbai: Less than an hour after his ‘satta jayegi’ statement, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut has dropped another mega hint on his Twitter suggesting that the Maharashtra Government may be moving towards dissolving the State Assembly. Posting a cryptic tweet on Wednesday, Sanjay Raut wrote, “The journey of political developments in Maharashtra (moving) towards the dismissal of Vidhan Sabha…”

The massive statement suggests that the Uddhav Thackeray-led Government may dissolve the Assembly as its numbers slip into a minority. All eyes are now on the urgent Cabinet meeting called by the Chief Minister. It is in this Cabinet Meeting where sources indicate that Uddhav Thackeray can pass a resolution to dissolve the Assembly.

Earlier, Raut had attempted to maintain a brave front and asserted that ‘positive discussions’ were being held with rebel Minister Eknath Shinde. However, he hinted at the possibility of power slipping from the ruling MVA’s hands. “What will happen at most? Our government will go. But power will come again. (zyaada se zyaada kya hoga? Satta jayegi. Satta phir saath mil jayegi.)” he told reporters.

Maha Govt runs out of options, Shinde breaks away 42 MLAs:

The Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) Government is running out of options with its numbers slipping below the majority mark. Post the MLC elections, an exodus has been triggered in the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena with rebel senior politician and Minister Eknath Shinde leading the faction. Sources have revealed that the Shiv Sainik, a staunch follower of late patriarch Balasaheb Thackeray, is upset over the party’s coalition with ideologically different Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress. The leader has sought for Shiv Sena to return back to its ‘natural ally’ BJP, and ‘not compromise on Hindutva’.

After bringing his flock to Surat, Eknath Shinde with at least 38-40 MLAs has reached Guwahati’s Raddison Blu hotel in Assam. Speaking at the Surat airport before departing for Guwahati, the Maharashtra Minister remarked, “We are Balasaheb’s Shiv Sainiks. We have not left Shiv Sena and we will not leave Shiv Sena. But we are going to do the politics based on Balasaheb’s ideology.” As per the anti-defection law, at least 37 Shiv Sena MLAs need to rebel in order to avoid the possibility of disqualification.
