Rebel Shiv Sena MLA and employment guarantee and horticulture minister Sandipan Bhumare on Saturday claimed that more legislators from the Uddhav Thackeray faction are in touch with them and would soon join chief minister Eknath Shinde’s group.
“Out of the 10-12 MLAs he [Thackeray] has, one of them met Shinde and me the other day. He said how to join. . . I said no problem, come here,” Bhu mare said while speaking at a public meeting in Paithan in Aurangabad district.
