Maha political crisis: CM Uddhav's emissaries meet Eknath Shinde in Surat

There are conflicting reports about the number of Shiv Sena MLAs who are camping at the Surat hotel with Shinde.

Maharashtra chief minister and Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray deputed 2 party leaders to hold talks with rebel leader Eknath Shinde in Surat.

The two Sena leaders met Shinde at a 5-star hotel in Surat where he is camping with a group of party MLAs. According to the reports, the meeting lasted over 2 hours.

The Maha Vikas Aghadi, Maharashtra's ruling coalition, was thrown into a poltical crisis after state minister Eknath Shinde went incommunicado on Monday evening.

There are conflicting reports about the number of Shiv Sena MLAs who are camping at the Surat hotel with Shinde. While some reports say there are 22 MLAs, other say as many as 35 lawmakers are supporting Shinde.

As Shinde is yet to spell out his stand, Maharashtra BJP chief Chandrakant Patil ruled out any link of his party to the ongoing political turmoil, but added the opposition outfit would "definitely consider" a proposal if it comes from the rebel leader to form an alternative government.

Without naming Uddhav Thackeray, who heads the Shiv Sena, Shinde took to Twitter, his only comment so far since the crisis broke on Tuesday morning, and said he will never "cheat for power" and abandon the teachings of party founder late Bal Thackeray.

"We are staunch Shiv Sainiks of Balasaheb who gave us lessons on Hindutva. We will never cheat for power and will never abandon the teachings of Balasaheb and Anand Dighe for power," Shinde tweeted in Marathi.
