Answering to the claims made by Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Aaditya Thackeray that Eknath Shinde’s chief ministerial post may be in jeopardy and he is asked to resign from CM post, Shinde’s Shiv Sena veteran leader said, Shinde would be CM in 2024 too.
Aaditya is making all baseless claims and trying to gain media headlines his predictions are childish said the Shiv Sena veteran.
His guesses on ‘changes in the government’ comes as reports emerged of trouble brewing in the Shinde camp over fears of being sidelined by the BJP and Pawar’s elevation. Ajit Pawar currently shares the deputy chief minister post with BJP’s Devendra Fadnavis.
Ajit split the NCP as he joined the Shiv Sena-BJP alliance and took oath as the state’s deputy chief minister for the fifth time. Later, Shiv Sena (UBT) faction’s Sanjay Raut announced that around 20 MLAs from Shinde’s faction were in contact with his party since Ajit’s rebellion.
Aaditya even stepped up his attack against Shinde by saying that Mumbai was facing water-logging from the first monsoon rains as nine municipal wards are without Assistant Commissioners (Ward Officers).
Adding that Mumbai’s infrastructure had “completely collapsed”, he accused the Shinde government of playing favourites, Aaditya wrote, “Gaddars have chosen their favourite junior officials not from the AO cadre to run their corrupt will in the ward, under obligations. Mumbai is facing dual robbery under the khoke regime, loot of its money and reputation.”
